# Math.Sinh Method

Silverlight

Returns the hyperbolic sine of the specified angle.

Namespace:  System
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

## Syntax

```[SecuritySafeCriticalAttribute]
public static double Sinh(
double value
)
```

#### Parameters

value
Type: System.Double

#### Return Value

Type: System.Double
The hyperbolic sine of value. If value is equal to NegativeInfinity, PositiveInfinity, or NaN, this method returns a Double equal to value.

## Remarks

The angle, value, must be in radians. Multiply by Math.PI/180 to convert degrees to radians.

## Examples

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

```
// Example for the hyperbolic Math.Sinh( double )
// and Math.Cosh( double ) methods.
