Java Math tanh() method with Examples

The java.lang.Math.tanh() returns the hyperbolic tangent of a double value passed to it as argument. The hyperbolic tangent of any value a is defined as,

((ea – e-a)/2)/((ea + e-a)/2)

where e is Euler’s number. In other words, we can say that tanh(a) = sinh(a)/cosh(a).



If the argument is NaN, then the result is NaN. If the argument is positive infinity then the result will be +1.0. If the argument is negative infinity then the result will be -1.0. If the argument is zero, then the result is zero with the same sign as that of the argument a.

Syntax :

public static double tanh(double a)
Parameter :
a : the value whose hyperbolic tangent is to be returned.

Return :
This method returns the hyperbolic tangent value of the argument.
