# asinh

(PHP 4 >= 4.1.0, PHP 5, PHP 7)

asinhInverse hyperbolic sine

### Description

asinh ( float `\$num` ) : float

Returns the inverse hyperbolic sine of `num`, i.e. the value whose hyperbolic sine is `num`.

### Parameters

`num`

The argument to process

### Return Values

The inverse hyperbolic sine of `num`

``` The correct implementation of asinh(x) for Windows plataform is:-------------------------------------------------------function asinh(\$x){        return ln(\$x + sqrt(1 + pow(\$x, 2)));}function ln(\$x){     return \$x = log(\$x)/log(M_E);}--------------------------------------------------------The worksheet above includes a comparation about the native asinh(x) and the implemented version using LN and LOG (like Snoyes posted on 27-Dec-2005 07:42) http://www.mavadesign.com.br/allan/asinh(x).xlsThis implementation using LN, give THE SAME results that function asinh(x) linux native.Allan Patrick EngelCuritiba - ParanĂ¡ - Brasil ```
``` asinh for windows:The definition for asinh is asinh(z) = log(z + sqrt(z^2 + 1))The built-in math functions and operators give poor results for small values of z.  The BCMath version produces closer results, but still quite distant if z < 1.  A BCMath version of the log function might help.if (!function_exists("asinh")) {    function asinh(\$z) {      return log(\$z + sqrt(\$z^2 +1));    }}if (!function_exists("bcasinh")) {    function bcasinh(\$z) {      return log(bcadd(\$z, bcsqrt(bcadd(bcpow(\$z, 2), 1))));    }} ```
