asinh (3)

NAME

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.

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.
