gives the inverse hyperbolic sine sinh^(-1)(z) of the complex number z.
  • Mathematical function, suitable for both symbolic and numerical manipulation.
  • For certain special arguments, ArcSinh automatically evaluates to exact values.
  • ArcSinh can be evaluated to arbitrary numerical precision.
  • ArcSinh automatically threads over lists.
  • ArcSinh[z] has branch cut discontinuities in the complex z plane running from -i ∞ to -i and +i to +i ∞.
