NAME

atanh, atanhf, atanhl – inverse hyperbolic tangent functions

CONTENTS

LIBRARY

Math Library (libm, -lm)

SYNOPSIS

#include <math.h>

double
atanh(double x);

float
atanhf(float x);

long double
atanhl(long double x);

DESCRIPTION

The atanh(), atanhf(), and atanhl() functions compute the inverse hyperbolic tangent of the real argument x. For a discussion of error due to roundoff, see math(3).

RETURN VALUES

These functions return the inverse hyperbolic tangent of x if successful. If the argument has absolute value 1, a divide-by-zero exception is raised and an infinity is returned. If |x| > 1, an invalid exception is raised and an NaN is returned.

SEE ALSO

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

HISTORY

The atanh(), atanhf(), and atanhl() functions appeared in BSD 4.3, FreeBSD 2.0, and FreeBSD 10.0, respectively.

"I liken starting one's computing career with Unix, say as an undergraduate, to being born in East Africa. It is intolerably hot, your body is covered with lice and flies, you are malnourished and you suffer from numerous curable diseases. But, as far as young East Africans can tell, this is simply the natural condition and they live within it. By the time they find out differently, it is too late. They already think that the writing of shell scripts is a natural act."
