# tanh

Hyperbolic tangent

Y = tanh(X)

## Description

The tanh function operates element-wise on arrays. The function's domains and ranges include complex values. All angles are in radians.

Y = tanh(X) returns the hyperbolic tangent of each element of X.

## Examples

### Hyperbolic Tangent

The hyperbolic tangent of z is

$\mathrm{tanh}\left(z\right)=\frac{\mathrm{sinh}\left(z\right)}{\mathrm{cosh}\left(z\right)}.$

### Tall Array Support

This function fully supports tall arrays. For more information, see Tall Arrays.
