NAME
atanh, atanhf, atanhl  inverse hyperbolic tangent function
SYNOPSIS
#include <math.h>
double atanh(double x);
float atanhf(float x);
long double atanhl(long double x);

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

_BSD_SOURCE  _SVID_SOURCE  _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 500 
_XOPEN_SOURCE && _XOPEN_SOURCE_EXTENDED  _ISOC99_SOURCE 
_POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L;

atanhf(),
atanhl():

_POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L;

cc std=c99
DESCRIPTION
The
atanh()
function calculates the inverse hyperbolic tangent of
x;
that is the value whose hyperbolic tangent is
x.
RETURN VALUE
On success, these functions return the inverse hyperbolic tangent of
x.
If
x
is a NaN, a NaN is returned.
If
x
is +0 (0), +0 (0) is returned.
If
x
is +1 or 1,
a pole error occurs,
and the functions return
HUGE_VAL,
HUGE_VALF,
or
HUGE_VALL,
respectively, with the mathematically correct sign.
If the absolute value of
x
is greater than 1,
a domain error occurs,
and a NaN is returned.
ERRORS
See
math_error(7)
for information on how to determine whether an error has occurred
when calling these functions.
The following errors can occur:
 Domain error: x less than 1 or greater than +1

errno
is set to
EDOM.
An invalid floatingpoint exception
(FE_INVALID)
is raised.
 Pole error: x is +1 or 1

errno
is set to
ERANGE
(but see BUGS).
A dividebyzero floatingpoint exception
(FE_DIVBYZERO)
is raised.
CONFORMING TO
C99, POSIX.12001.
The variant returning
double
also conforms to
SVr4, 4.3BSD, C89.
BUGS
In glibc 2.9 and earlier,
when a pole error occurs,
errno
as set to
EDOM
instead of the POSIXmandated
ERANGE.
Since version 2.10, glibc does the right thing.
