# scipy.special.shichi¶

scipy.special.shichi(x, out=None) = <ufunc 'shichi'>

Hyperbolic sine and cosine integrals.

The hyperbolic sine integral is

$\int_0^x \frac{\sinh{t}}{t}dt$

and the hyperbolic cosine integral is

$\gamma + \log(x) + \int_0^x \frac{\cosh{t} - 1}{t} dt$

where $$\gamma$$ is Euler’s constant and $$\log$$ is the principle branch of the logarithm.

Parameters: x : array_like Real or complex points at which to compute the hyperbolic sine and cosine integrals. si : ndarray Hyperbolic sine integral at x ci : ndarray Hyperbolic cosine integral at x

Notes

For real arguments with x < 0, chi is the real part of the hyperbolic cosine integral. For such points chi(x) and chi(x + 0j) differ by a factor of 1j*pi.

For real arguments the function is computed by calling Cephes’  shichi routine. For complex arguments the algorithm is based on Mpmath’s  shi and chi routines.
