# acoth

Inverse hyperbolic cotangent

## Syntax

`Y = acoth(X)`

## Description

`Y = acoth(X)` returns the inverse hyperbolic cotangent for each element of `X`.

The `acoth` function operates element-wise on arrays. The function's domains and ranges include complex values. All angles are in radians.
