Tanh Method

Math.Tanh Method

Returns the hyperbolic tangent of the specified angle.

Namespace:  System
Assemblies:   mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
  System.Runtime.Extensions (in System.Runtime.Extensions.dll)

public static double Tanh(
	double value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Double

An angle, measured in radians.

Return Value

Type: System.Double
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.

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

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