  • THE OTHER FOUR The remaining four hyperbolic functions follow from the hyperbolic sine and the hyperbolic cosine, like this: tanh x ¼ sinh x = cosh x csch x ¼ 1 = sinh x sech x ¼ 1 = cosh x coth x ¼ cosh x = sinh x In terms of exponential functions, they are expressed this way: tanh x ¼ ðex À eÀx Þ = ðex þ eÀx Þ csch x ¼ 2 = ðex À eÀx
