**DESCRIPTION**

These functions calculate the inverse hyperbolic tangent ofx; that is the value whose hyperbolic tangent isx.

**RETURN** **VALUE**

On success, these functions return the inverse hyperbolic tangent ofx. Ifxis a NaN, a NaN is returned. Ifxis +0 (-0), +0 (-0) is returned. Ifxis +1 or -1, a pole error occurs, and the functions returnHUGE_VAL,HUGE_VALF, orHUGE_VALL, respectively, with the mathematically correct sign. If the absolute value ofxis greater than 1, a domain error occurs, and a NaN is returned.

**ERRORS**

Seemath_error(7) for information on how to determine whether an error has occurred when calling these functions. The following errors can occur: Domain error:xless than -1 or greater than +1errnois set toEDOM. An invalid floating-point exception (FE_INVALID) is raised. Pole error:xis +1 or -1errnois set toERANGE(but see BUGS). A divide-by-zero floating-point exception (FE_DIVBYZERO) is raised.

**CONFORMING** **TO**

C99, POSIX.1-2001, POSIX.1-2008. The variant returningdoublealso conforms to SVr4, 4.3BSD.

**BUGS**

In glibc 2.9 and earlier, when a pole error occurs,errnoas set toEDOMinstead of the POSIX-mandatedERANGE. Since version 2.10, glibc does the right thing.
