CACOSH(3)                 Linux Programmer's Manual                CACOSH(3)

NAME         top

       cacosh, cacoshf, cacoshl - complex arc hyperbolic cosine

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <complex.h>

       double complex cacosh(double complex z);
       float complex cacoshf(float complex z);
       long double complex cacoshl(long double complex z);

       Link with -lm.

DESCRIPTION         top

       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         top

       These functions first appeared in glibc in version 2.1.
