Unformatted text preview: Hyperbolic Functions Greg Kelly, Hanford High School, Richland, Washington Photo by Vickie Kelly, 2005 Scotty’s Castle, Death Valley, CA Consider the following two functions: 2 2 x x x x e e e e y y---+ = = These functions show up frequently enough that they have been given names. → 2 2 x x x x e e e e y y---+ = = The behavior of these functions shows such remarkable parallels to trig functions, that they have been given similar names. → Hyperbolic Sine: ( 29 sinh 2 x x e e x--= (pronounced “cinch x”) Hyperbolic Cosine: (pronounced “kosh x”) ( 29 cosh 2 x x e e x-+ = → Hyperbolic Tangent: ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 sinh tanh cosh x x x x x e e x x e e---= = + “tansh (x)” Hyperbolic Cotangent: ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 cosh coth sinh x x x x x e e x x e e--+ = =-“cotansh (x)” Hyperbolic Secant: ( 29 ( 29 1 2 sech cosh x x x x e e-= = + “sech (x)” Hyperbolic Cosecant: ( 29 ( 29 1 2 csch sinh x x x x e e-= =-“cosech (x)” → First, an easy one: Now, if we have “trig-like” functions, it follows that we will have “trig-like” identities....
