Inverse hyperbolic cosine


Y = acosh(X)


Y = acosh(X) returns the inverse hyperbolic cosine for each element of X.

The acosh function operates element-wise on arrays. The function's domains and ranges include complex values. All angles are in radians.

Inverse Hyperbolic Cosine

For real values x in the domain x>1, the inverse hyperbolic cosine satisfies


For complex numbers z=x+iy, as well as real values in the domain <z1, the call acosh(z) returns complex results.
