C# Math - Cosh() Method



The C# Cosh() method returns hyperbolic cosine of a value. The hyperbolic cosine of x is defined as:

Cosh

where e is an Euler's number.

In special cases it returns the following:

  • If the argument is NaN, the method returns NaN.
  • If the argument is positive infinity or negative infinity, the method returns positive infinity.

Syntax

public static double Cosh(double arg);

Parameters

arg Specify the value.

Return Value

Returns the hyperbolic cosine of a value.

Example:

In the example below, Cosh() method is used to find out the hyperbolic cosine of a value.

using System;

class MyProgram {
  static void Main(string[] args) {
    Console.WriteLine("Math.Cosh(-2) = "
                      + Math.Cosh(-2));
    Console.WriteLine("Math.Cosh(-1) = "
                      + Math.Cosh(-1));
    Console.WriteLine("Math.Cosh(0) = "
                      + Math.Cosh(0));
    Console.WriteLine("Math.Cosh(1) = "
                      + Math.Cosh(1));
    Console.WriteLine("Math.Cosh(2) = "
                      + Math.Cosh(2));
    Console.WriteLine("Math.Cosh(Double.NaN) = "
                      + Math.Cosh(Double.NaN));
    Console.WriteLine("Math.Cosh(Double.NegativeInfinity) = "
                      + Math.Cosh(Double.NegativeInfinity));
    Console.WriteLine("Math.Cosh(Double.PositiveInfinity) = "
                      + Math.Cosh(Double.PositiveInfinity));
  }
}

The output of the above code will be:

Math.Cosh(-2) = 3.76219569108363
Math.Cosh(-1) = 1.54308063481524
Math.Cosh(0) = 1
Math.Cosh(1) = 1.54308063481524
Math.Cosh(2) = 3.76219569108363
Math.Cosh(Double.NaN) = NaN
Math.Cosh(Double.NegativeInfinity) = Infinity
Math.Cosh(Double.PositiveInfinity) = Infinity
