COSH

COSH

The COSH function returns the hyperbolic cosine of X.

Examples


Find the hyperbolic cosine of 0.5 radians and print the result by entering:

PRINT, COSH(.5)

IDL prints:

1.12763

Syntax


Result = COSH(X)

Return Value


Returns the hyperbolic cosine of X.

Arguments


X

The value for which the hyperbolic cosine is desired, specified in radians. If X is double-precision floating or complex, the result is of the same type. All other types are converted to single-precision floating-point and yield floating-point results. COSH is defined as:

COSH(u) = (eu + e-u) / 2

If X is an array, the result has the same structure, with each element containing the hyperbolic cosine of the corresponding element of X.

Keywords


Thread Pool Keywords

This routine is written to make use of IDL’s thread pool, which can increase execution speed on systems with multiple CPUs. The values stored in the !CPU system variable control whether IDL uses the thread pool for a given computation. In addition, you can use the thread pool keywords TPOOL_MAX_ELTS, TPOOL_MIN_ELTS, and TPOOL_NOTHREAD to override the defaults established by !CPU for a single invocation of this routine. See Thread Pool Keywords for details.
