## What is the hyperbolic secant?

Hyperbolic secant is the reciprocal of the of the hyperbolic cosine or:

sech(x)=\frac{1}{\cosh(x)}=\frac{2}{e^{x}+e^{-x}}

### Hyperbolic secant as a formula

As a hyperbolic function, hyperbolic secant is usually abbreviated as "sech", as in the following equation:

sech(\theta)

If you already know the hyperbolic secant, use the inverse hyperbolic secant or arcsech to find the angle.
