sech

Hyperbolic secant

Y = sech(X)

Description

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

Y = sech(X) returns an array the same size as X containing the hyperbolic secant of the elements of X.

Hyperbolic Secant

The hyperbolic secant of z is

$\text{sech}\left(z\right)=\frac{1}{\mathrm{cosh}\left(z\right)}.$
