These functions calculate the inverse hyperbolic tangent of `x`

; that is the value whose hyperbolic tangent is `x`

.

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.

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.

For an explanation of the terms used in this section, see attributes(7).

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

The variant returning `double`

also conforms to SVr4, 4.3BSD.

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.
