Math.Tanh(Double) Method

Definition

Returns the hyperbolic tangent of the specified angle.

public static double Tanh (double value);
Parameters
value
Double

An angle, measured in radians.

Returns

The hyperbolic tangent of value. If value is equal to NegativeInfinity, this method returns -1. If value is equal to PositiveInfinity, this method returns 1. If value is equal to NaN, this method returns NaN.

Examples

The following example uses Tanh to evaluate certain hyperbolic tangent identities for selected values.
