On a VAX, acosh is accurate to about 3 \*(ups, asinh and atanh to about 2 \*(ups. An \*(up is one \fIU\fRnit in the \fIL\fRast \fIP\fRlace carried. .SH DIAGNOSTICS Acosh returns the reserved operand on a VAX if the argument is less than 1. .PP Atanh returns the reserved operand on a VAX if the argument has absolute value bigger than or equal to 1. .SH SEE ALSO math(3M), exp(3M), infnan(3M) .SH AUTHOR W.
