numpy.arcsinh¶

numpy.
arcsinh
(x, /, out=None, *, where=True, casting='same_kind', order='K', dtype=None, subok=True[, signature, extobj]) = <ufunc 'arcsinh'>¶ Inverse hyperbolic sine elementwise.
Parameters:  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 freshlyallocated 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.
 **kwargs
For other keywordonly arguments, see the ufunc docs.
Returns:  out : ndarray or scalar
Array of the same shape as x. This is a scalar if x is a scalar.
Notes
arcsinh
is a multivalued function: for each x there are infinitely many numbers z such that sinh(z) = x. The convention is to return the z whose imaginary part lies in [pi/2, pi/2].For realvalued input data types,
arcsinh
always returns real output. For each value that cannot be expressed as a real number or infinity, it returnsnan
and sets the invalid floating point error flag.For complexvalued input,
arccos
is a complex analytical function that has branch cuts [1j, infj] and [1j, infj] and is continuous from the right on the former and from the left on the latter.The inverse hyperbolic sine is also known as asinh or
sinh^1
