cacosh, cacoshf, cacoshl

Retrieves the inverse hyperbolic cosine of a complex number with a branch cut at values less than 1 along the real axis. .


_Dcomplex cacosh(
   _Dcomplex z
_Fcomplex cacosh(
   _Fcomplex z
);  // C++ only
_Lcomplex cacosh(
   _Lcomplex z
);  // C++ only
_Fcomplex cacoshf(
   _Fcomplex z
_Lcomplex cacoshl(
   _Lcomplex z


A complex number that represents an angle, in radians.

Return Value

The inverse hyperbolic cosine of z, in radians. The result is unbounded and non-negative along the real axis, and in the interval [-iπ, +iπ] along the imaginary axis.


Because C++ allows overloading, you can call overloads of cacosh that take and return _Fcomplex and _Lcomplex values. In a C program, cacosh always takes and returns a _Dcomplex value.
