ASINH Inverse Hyperbolic Sine Function

Section: Mathematical Functions


Computes the inverse hyperbolic sine of its argument. The general syntax for its use is
  y = asinh(x)

where x is an n-dimensional array of numerical type.

Function Internals

The asinh function is computed from the formula

where the log (and square root) is taken in its most general sense.


Here is a simple plot of the inverse hyperbolic sine function
--> x = -5:.01:5;
--> plot(x,asinh(x)); grid('on');
