// __ieee754_acosh(x)
// Method :
//	Based on
//	        acosh(x) = log [ x + sqrt(x*x-1) ]
//	we have
//	        acosh(x) := log(x)+ln2,	if x is large; else
//	        acosh(x) := log(2x-1/(sqrt(x*x-1)+x)) if x>2; else
//	        acosh(x) := log1p(t+sqrt(2.0*t+t*t)); where t=x-1.
//
// Special cases:
//	acosh(x) is NaN with signal if x<1.
//	acosh(NaN) is NaN without signal.
//

// Acosh returns the inverse hyperbolic cosine of x.
//
// Special cases are:
//	Acosh(+Inf) = +Inf
//	Acosh(x) = NaN if x < 1
//	Acosh(NaN) = NaN
