numpy.cosh(x, /, out=None, *, where=True, casting='same_kind', order='K', dtype=None, subok=True[, signature, extobj]) = <ufunc 'cosh'>

Hyperbolic cosine, element-wise.

Equivalent to 1/2 * (np.exp(x) + np.exp(-x)) and np.cos(1j*x).

x : array_like

Input array.

out : ndarray, None, or tuple of ndarray and None, optional

A location into which the result is stored. If provided, it must have a shape that the inputs broadcast to. If not provided or None, a freshly-allocated array is returned. A tuple (possible only as a keyword argument) must have length equal to the number of outputs.

where : array_like, optional

Values of True indicate to calculate the ufunc at that position, values of False indicate to leave the value in the output alone.


For other keyword-only arguments, see the ufunc docs.

out : ndarray or scalar

Output array of same shape as x. This is a scalar if x is a scalar.


>>> np.cosh(0)

The hyperbolic cosine describes the shape of a hanging cable:

>>> import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
>>> x = np.linspace(-4, 4, 1000)
>>> plt.plot(x, np.cosh(x))
