The coshֿ¹( function gives the inverse hyperbolic cosine of a value. coshֿ¹(x) is the number y such that x = cosh(y).

Although coshֿ¹(x) can be defined for all real and complex numbers, it assumes real values only for x≥1. Since hyperbolic functions in the Z80 calculators are restricted only to real values, ERR:DOMAIN is thrown when x<1.

The coshֿ¹( command also works for lists.

    {1.316957897 1.762747174}

Error Conditions

  • ERR:DOMAIN when taking the inverse cosh of a number less than 1.
