NAME¶cosh, coshf, coshl - hyperbolic cosine function
#include <math.h> double cosh(double x);Link with -lm.float coshf(float x);long double coshl(long double x);
Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):
_BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 || _ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L;or cc -std=c99
DESCRIPTION¶The cosh() function returns the hyperbolic cosine of x, which is defined mathematically as:
cosh(x) = (exp(x) + exp(-x)) / 2
RETURN VALUE¶On success, these functions return the hyperbolic cosine of x. If x is a NaN, a NaN is returned. If x is +0 or -0, 1 is returned. If x is positive infinity or negative infinity, positive infinity is returned. If the result overflows, a range error occurs, and the functions return +HUGE_VAL, +HUGE_VALF, or +HUGE_VALL, respectively.
ERRORS¶See math_error(7) for information on how to determine whether an error has occurred when calling these functions. The following errors can occur:
- Range error: result overflow
- errno is set to ERANGE. An overflow floating-point exception (FE_OVERFLOW) is raised.
CONFORMING TO¶C99, POSIX.1-2001. The variant returning double also conforms to SVr4, 4.3BSD.
BUGS¶In glibc version 2.3.4 and earlier, an overflow floating-point (FE_OVERFLOW) exception is not raised when an overflow occurs.
