       acosh, acoshf, acoshl — inverse hyperbolic cosine functions


       #include <math.h>

       double acosh(double x);
       float acoshf(float x);
       long double acoshl(long double x);


       The functionality described on this reference page is aligned with the ISO C standard. Any
       conflict between the requirements described here and the ISO C standard is  unintentional.
       This volume of POSIX.1‐2008 defers to the ISO C standard.

       These functions shall compute the inverse hyperbolic cosine of their argument x.

       An  application  wishing  to  check for error situations should set errno to zero and call
       feclearexcept(FE_ALL_EXCEPT) before calling these functions. On return, if errno  is  non-
       zero  or fetestexcept(FE_INVALID | FE_DIVBYZERO | FE_OVERFLOW | FE_UNDERFLOW) is non-zero,
       an error has occurred.


       Upon successful completion, these functions shall return the inverse hyperbolic cosine  of
       their argument.

       For  finite  values of x < 1, a domain error shall occur, and either a NaN (if supported),
       or an implementation-defined value shall be returned.

       If x is NaN, a NaN shall be returned.

       If x is +1, +0 shall be returned.

       If x is +Inf, +Inf shall be returned.

       If x is −Inf, a domain error shall occur, and a NaN shall be returned.


       These functions shall fail if:

       Domain Error
                   The x argument is finite and less than +1.0, or is −Inf.

                   If the integer expression (math_errhandling & MATH_ERRNO)  is  non-zero,  then
                   errno  shall  be set to [EDOM].  If the integer expression (math_errhandling &
                   MATH_ERREXCEPT) is non-zero, then the invalid floating-point  exception  shall
                   be raised.

       The following sections are informative.




       On  error,  the  expressions  (math_errhandling  &  MATH_ERRNO)  and  (math_errhandling  &
       MATH_ERREXCEPT) are independent of each other, but at least one of them must be non-zero.
