COSH()

COSH()

Hyperbolic Cosine of the argument

Syntax

      COSH( nArea ) -> nHyperbolicCosine

Arguments

<nArea> the size of the area (see below)

Returns

<nHyperbolicCosine> the hyperbolic cosine of <nArea>

Description

The function COSH() calculates the hyperbolic cosine of the argument. In analytical mathematics it is defined as 1/2*(exp(nArea)+exp(-nArea)). A common geometric interpretation of the COSH() function is the maximum x value of the points in the area with the given size <nArea>, that is bound by the x axis, a straight line through the point of origin (this one is fixed by the area) and the hyperbola xˆ2-yˆ2=1.

Examples

      ? cosh( 0.0 ) // --> 1.0
      ? cosh( 1.0 ) // --> 1.5430...

Tests

      cosh( 0.0 ) == 1.0
      cosh( -0.5 ) == cosh( 0.5 )
