Hyperbolic tangent

Syntax

```Y = tanh(X) ```

Description

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

`Y = tanh(X)` returns the hyperbolic tangent of each element of `X`.

Hyperbolic Tangent

The hyperbolic tangent of z is

`$\mathrm{tanh}\left(z\right)=\frac{\mathrm{sinh}\left(z\right)}{\mathrm{cosh}\left(z\right)}.$`
