asinh, asinhf, asinhl — inverse hyperbolic sine function

Synopsis

#include <math.h>

double asinh(double x);

float asinhf(float x);

long double asinhl(long double x);

Link with -lm.

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

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

asinhf(), asinhl():

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.
