NAME¶atanh, atanhf, atanhl - inverse hyperbolic tangent function
#include <math.h> double atanh(double x);Link with -lm.
float atanhf(float x);
long double atanhl(long double x);
Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):
DESCRIPTION¶These functions calculate the inverse hyperbolic tangent of x; that is the value whose hyperbolic tangent is x.
RETURN VALUE¶On success, these functions return the inverse hyperbolic tangent of x.
If x is a NaN, a NaN is returned.
If x is +0 (-0), +0 (-0) is returned.
If x is +1 or -1, a pole error occurs, and the functions return HUGE_VAL, HUGE_VALF, or HUGE_VALL, respectively, with the mathematically correct sign.
If the absolute value of x is greater than 1, a domain error occurs, and a NaN is returned.
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:
- Domain error: x less than -1 or greater than +1
- errno is set to EDOM. An invalid floating-point exception (FE_INVALID) is raised.
- Pole error: x is +1 or -1
- errno is set to ERANGE (but see BUGS). A divide-by-zero floating-point exception (FE_DIVBYZERO) is raised.
ATTRIBUTES¶For an explanation of the terms used in this section, see attributes(7).

CONFORMING TO¶C99, POSIX.1-2001, POSIX.1-2008.
The variant returning double also conforms to SVr4, 4.3BSD, C89.
BUGS¶In glibc 2.9 and earlier, when a pole error occurs, errno as set to EDOM instead of the POSIX-mandated ERANGE. Since version 2.10, glibc does the right thing.
