8.7 ACOSH — Inverse hyperbolic cosine function

Description:
ACOSH(X) computes the inverse hyperbolic cosine of X.
Standard:
Fortran 2008 and later
Class:
Elemental function
Syntax:
RESULT = ACOSH(X)
Arguments:

 X The type shall be REAL or COMPLEX.

Return value:
The return value has the same type and kind as X. If X is complex, the imaginary part of the result is in radians and lies between 0 \leq \Im \acosh(x) \leq \pi.
Example:
          PROGRAM test_acosh
REAL(8), DIMENSION(3) :: x = (/ 1.0, 2.0, 3.0 /)
WRITE (*,*) ACOSH(x)
END PROGRAM
