Bug 4633024 added many useful methods to Java's math libraries in Tiger.  However, C's libm still includes useful methods that were not added in Tiger.  This bug tracks request for those methods such as:

inverse hyperbolic transcendental functions (asinh, acosh, atanh)
fused mac (fma)
log2, exp2

The methods uniquely covered in this bug, the inverse hyperbolic transcendental functions (asinh, acosh, atanh), don't seem to have much demand so this issue is being closed as won't fix.
