Thecosh() function returns the hyperbolic cosine ofx, which is defined mathematically as: cosh(x) = (exp(x) + exp(-x)) / 2

On success, these functions return the hyperbolic cosine ofx. Ifxis a NaN, a NaN is returned. Ifxis +0 or -0, 1 is returned. Ifxis positive infinity or negative infinity, positive infinity is returned. If the result overflows, a range error occurs, and the functions return +HUGE_VAL, +HUGE_VALF, or +HUGE_VALL, respectively.

Seemath_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 overflowerrnois set toERANGE. An overflow floating-point exception (FE_OVERFLOW) is raised.

C99, POSIX.1-2001. The variant returningdoublealso conforms to SVr4, 4.3BSD.

In glibc version 2.3.4 and earlier, an overflow floating-point (FE_OVERFLOW) exception is not raised when an overflow occurs.
