Hyperbolic cotangent



Y = coth(X) returns the hyperbolic tangent of the elements of X. The coth function operates element-wise on arrays. The function accepts both real and complex inputs. All angles are in radians.

Create a vector and calculate the hyperbolic cotangent of each value.

X = [0 pi 2*pi 3*pi];
Y = coth(X)
Y = 1×4

Plot the hyperbolic cotangent over the domain -π<x<0 and 0<x<π.

x1 = -pi+0.01:0.01:-0.01; 
x2 = 0.01:0.01:pi-0.01;
y1 = coth(x1);
y2 = coth(x2);

Hyperbolic Cotangent

The hyperbolic cotangent of x is equal to the inverse of the hyperbolic tangent


In terms of the traditional cotangent function with a complex argument, the identity is
