These functions calculate the inverse hyperbolic cosine of
x; that is the value whose hyperbolic cosine is
On success, these functions return the inverse hyperbolic cosine of
x is a NaN, a NaN is returned.
x is +1, +0 is returned.
x is positive infinity, positive infinity is
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:
xis less than 1
errno is set to EDOM. An invalid
floating-point exception (FE_INVALID) is raised.

The variant returning
double also conforms to SVr4,
