ASINH(3) Library Functions Manual ASINH(3)

NAME

asinh, asinhf, asinhl - inverse hyperbolic sine function

LIBRARY

Math library (libm, -lm)

SYNOPSIS

#include <math.h>
double asinh(double x);
float asinhf(float x);
long double asinhl(long double x);

Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

asinh():


_ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L
|| _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 500
|| /* Since glibc 2.19: */ _DEFAULT_SOURCE
|| /* Glibc <= 2.19: */ _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE

asinhf(), asinhl():


_ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L
|| /* Since glibc 2.19: */ _DEFAULT_SOURCE
|| /* Glibc <= 2.19: */ _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE

DESCRIPTION

These functions calculate the inverse hyperbolic sine of x; that is the value whose hyperbolic sine is x.

RETURN VALUE

On success, these functions return the inverse hyperbolic sine of x.

If x is a NaN, a NaN is returned.

If x is +0 (-0), +0 (-0) is returned.

If x is positive infinity (negative infinity), positive infinity (negative infinity) is returned.

ERRORS

No errors occur.

ATTRIBUTES

For an explanation of the terms used in this section, see attributes(7).

STANDARDS

C99, POSIX.1-2001, POSIX.1-2008.

The variant returning double also conforms to SVr4, 4.3BSD.
