catanh - Man Page

complex arc tangents hyperbolic

Library

Math library (libm, -lm)

Synopsis

#include <complex.h>

double complex catanh(double complex z);
float complex catanhf(float complex z);
long double complex catanhl(long double complex z);

Description

These functions calculate the complex arc hyperbolic tangent of z. If y = catanh(z), then z = ctanh(y). The imaginary part of y is chosen in the interval [-pi/2,pi/2].

One has:

catanh(z) = 0.5 * (clog(1 + z) - clog(1 - z))

Versions

These functions first appeared in glibc in version 2.1.
