Background & Context
- ArcSech is the inverse hyperbolic secant function. For a real number , ArcSec[x] represents the hyperbolic angle measure such that .
- ArcSech automatically threads over lists. For certain special arguments, ArcSech automatically evaluates to exact values. When given exact numeric expressions as arguments, ArcSech may be evaluated to arbitrary numeric precision. Operations useful for manipulation of symbolic expressions involving ArcSech include FunctionExpand, TrigToExp, TrigExpand, Simplify, and FullSimplify.
- ArcSech is defined for complex argument by . ArcSech[z] has branch cut discontinuities in the complex plane.
- Related mathematical functions include Sech, ArcCsch, and ArcSec.
