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);

       Link with -lm.

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

       atanh():
           _ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L
               || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 500
               || /* Since glibc 2.19: */ _DEFAULT_SOURCE
               || /* Glibc versions <= 2.19: */ _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE

       atanhf(), atanhl():
           _ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L
               || /* Since glibc 2.19: */ _DEFAULT_SOURCE
               || /* Glibc versions <= 2.19: */ _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE

DESCRIPTION
       These functions calculate 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 floating-point exception
              (FE_INVALID) is raised.

       Pole error: x is +1 or -1
              errno is set to ERANGE (but see BUGS).  A divide-by-zero
              floating-point exception (FE_DIVBYZERO) is raised.

CONFORMING TO
       C99, POSIX.1-2001, POSIX.1-2008.

       The variant returning double also conforms to SVr4, 4.3BSD.

BUGS
       In glibc 2.9 and earlier, when a pole error occurs, errno as set to
       EDOM instead of the POSIX-mandated ERANGE.  Since version 2.10, glibc
       does the right thing.
