ArcSinh

ArcSinh[z]
gives the inverse hyperbolic sine of the complex number .
  • 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 plane running from to and to .
