NAME

acosh, acoshf, acoshl – inverse hyperbolic cosine functions

CONTENTS

LIBRARY

Math Library (libm, -lm)

SYNOPSIS

#include <math.h>

double
acosh(double x);

float
acoshf(float x);

long double
acoshl(long double x);

DESCRIPTION

The acosh(), acoshf(), and acoshl() functions compute the inverse hyperbolic cosine of the real argument x. For a discussion of error due to roundoff, see math(3).

RETURN VALUES

These functions return the inverse hyperbolic cosine of x. If the argument is less than 1, acosh() raises an invalid exception and returns an NaN.

SEE ALSO

asinh(3), atanh(3), exp(3), fenv(3), math(3)

HISTORY

The acosh(), acoshf(), and acoshl() functions appeared in BSD 4.3, FreeBSD 2.0, and FreeBSD 10.0, respectively.

Our grievance is not just against Unix itself, but against the cult of Unix zealots who defend and nurture it. They take the heat, disease, and pestilence as givens, and, as ancient shamans did, display their wounds, some self-inflicted, as proof of their power and wizardry. We aim, through bluntness and humor, to show them that they pray to a tin god, and that science, not religion, is the path to useful and friendly technology.
