acosh, acoshf, acoshl  inverse hyperbolic cosine function
#include <math.h> double acosh(double x); float acoshf(float x); long double acoshl(long double x); Link with lm. Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)): acosh(): _BSD_SOURCE  _SVID_SOURCE  _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 500  _XOPEN_SOURCE && _XOPEN_SOURCE_EXTENDED  _ISOC99_SOURCE  _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L; or cc std=c99 acoshf(), acoshl(): _BSD_SOURCE  _SVID_SOURCE  _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600  _ISOC99_SOURCE  _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L; or cc std=c99
The acosh() function calculates the inverse hyperbolic cosine of x; that is the value whose hyperbolic cosine is x.
On success, these functions return the inverse hyperbolic cosine of x. If x is a NaN, a NaN is returned. If x is +1, +0 is returned. If x is positive infinity, positive infinity is returned. If x is less than 1, a domain error occurs, and the functions return a NaN.
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 is less than 1 errno is set to EDOM. An invalid floatingpoint exception (FE_INVALID) is raised.
C99, POSIX.12001. The variant returning double also conforms to SVr4, 4.3BSD, C89.
