NAMEcosh, coshf, coshl - hyperbolic cosine function
double cosh(double x );
float coshf(float x );
long double coshl(long double x );
Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):
_BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 || _ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L;or cc -std=c99
DESCRIPTIONThe cosh() function returns the hyperbolic cosine of x, which is defined mathematically as:
cosh(x) = (exp(x) + exp(-x)) / 2
RETURN VALUEOn success, these functions return the hyperbolic cosine of x.
ERRORSSee math_error(7) for information on how to determine whether an error has occurred when calling these functions.
The following errors can occur:
- Range error: result overflow
- errno is set to ERANGE. An overflow floating-point exception ( FE_OVERFLOW) is raised.
CONFORMING TOC99, POSIX.1-2001. The variant returning double also conforms to SVr4, 4.3BSD.
BUGSIn glibc version 2.3.4 and earlier, an overflow floating-point ( FE_OVERFLOW) exception is not raised when an overflow occurs.
