CACOSH(3) Library Functions Manual CACOSH(3)

NAME

cacosh, cacoshf, cacoshl - complex arc hyperbolic cosine

LIBRARY

Math library (libm, -lm)

SYNOPSIS

#include <complex.h>
double complex cacosh(double complex z);
float complex cacoshf(float complex z);
long double complex cacoshl(long double complex z);

DESCRIPTION

These functions calculate the complex arc hyperbolic cosine of z. If y = cacosh(z), then z = ccosh(y). The imaginary part of y is chosen in the interval [-pi,pi]. The real part of y is chosen nonnegative.

One has:


cacosh(z) = 2 * clog(csqrt((z + 1) / 2) + csqrt((z - 1) / 2))

VERSIONS

These functions first appeared in glibc in version 2.1.
