[edit] "arc" in the pages of complex inverse hyperbolics

Should "arc" really be "inverse" or better "area"? I have read that these functions have nothing to do with an arc. Newatthis (talk) 06:27, 20 May 2014 (PDT)

Both The C standard and the POSIX standard call them "complex arc hyperbolic cosine" etc. Even though this wiki's C++ reference was changed to "area" at some point, I believe the normative reference should follow the standards, with contradictions and alternatives noted under "Notes". --Cubbi (talk) 06:34, 20 May 2014 (PDT)
