Function name:

ACOTH

Category:

Mathematical

Summary:

Calculates the inverse hyperbolic cotangent (arcoth) of a real number, in radians.

Syntax:

ACOTH(Number)

Returns:

Returns a non-zero real number that is the inverse hyperbolic cotangent of Number in radians.

Arguments:

Number is a real number that lies outside the range [-1, 1], or a reference to a cell containing that number, whose inverse hyperbolic cotangent is to be calculated.

  • If Number is non-numeric, then ACOTH reports a #VALUE! error.
  • If Number lies in the range [-1, 1], then ACOTH reports an invalid argument error (Err:502).

Additional details:

The formula for the inverse hyperbolic cotangent of x is:

[math]\displaystyle{ \text{arcoth}(x)~=~\frac{1}{2}\ln\left(\frac{x+1}{x-1}\right) }[/math]
