The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on docs.microsoft.com to see the new experience.

Returns the hyperbolic cosine of the specified angle.

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

public:
static double Cosh(
	double value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System::Double

An angle, measured in radians.

Return Value

Type: System::Double

The hyperbolic cosine of value. If value is equal to NegativeInfinity or PositiveInfinity, PositiveInfinity is returned. If value is equal to NaN, NaN is returned.

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

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

// Example for the hyperbolic Math.Sinh( double ) 
// and Math.Cosh( double ) methods.
using namespace System;

// Evaluate hyperbolic identities with a given argument.
void UseSinhCosh( double arg )

   double coshArg = Math::Cosh( arg );

   // Evaluate cosh^2(X) - sinh^2(X) == 1.
   Console::WriteLine( "\n                          Math::Sinh({0}) == {1:E16}\n"

   Console::WriteLine( "(Math::Cosh({0}))^2 - (Math::Sinh({0}))^2 == {1:E16}", arg, coshArg * coshArg - sinhArg * sinhArg );

   // Evaluate sinh(2 * X) == 2 * sinh(X) * cosh(X).
   Console::WriteLine( "                          Math::Sinh({0}) == {1:E16}", 2.0 * arg, Math::Sinh( 2.0 * arg ) );
