Computes complex hyperbolic tangent of a complex value z
.
Contents 
[edit] Parameters
z    complex value 
[edit] Return value
If no errors occur, complex hyperbolic tangent of z
is returned
[edit] Error handling and special values
Errors are reported consistent with math_errhandling
If the implementation supports IEEE floatingpoint arithmetic,
 std::tanh(std::conj(z)) == std::conj(std::tanh(z))
 std::tanh(z) == std::tanh(z)
 If
z
is(+0,+0)
, the result is(+0,+0)
 If
z
is(x,+∞)
(for any^{[1]} finite x), the result is(NaN,NaN)
and FE_INVALID is raised  If
z
is(x,NaN)
(for any^{[2]} finite x), the result is(NaN,NaN)
and FE_INVALID may be raised  If
z
is(+∞,y)
(for any finite positive y), the result is(1,+0)
 If
z
is(+∞,+∞)
, the result is(1,±0)
(the sign of the imaginary part is unspecified)  If
z
is(+∞,NaN)
, the result is(1,±0)
(the sign of the imaginary part is unspecified)  If
z
is(NaN,+0)
, the result is(NaN,+0)
 If
z
is(NaN,y)
(for any nonzero y), the result is(NaN,NaN)
and FE_INVALID may be raised  If
z
is(NaN,NaN)
, the result is(NaN,NaN)

↑ per C11 DR471, this only holds for nonzero x. If
z
is(0,∞)
, the result should be(0,NaN)

[edit] Notes
Mathematical definition of hyperbolic tangent is tanh z =ez ez 
ez +ez 
Hyperbolic tangent is an analytical function on the complex plain and has no branch cuts. It is periodic with respect to the imaginary component, with period πi, and has poles of the first order along the imaginary line, at coordinates (0, π(1/2 + n)). However no common floatingpoint representation is able to represent π/2 exactly, thus there is no value of the argument for which a pole error occurs.
[edit] Example
Run this code
#include <iostream> #include <cmath> #include <complex> int main() { std::cout << std::fixed; std::complex<double> z(1, 0); // behaves like real tanh along the real line std::cout << "tanh" << z << " = " << std::tanh(z) << " (tanh(1) = " << std::tanh(1) << ")\n"; std::complex<double> z2(0, 1); // behaves like tangent along the imaginary line std::cout << "tanh" << z2 << " = " << std::tanh(z2) << " ( tan(1) = " << std::tan(1) << ")\n"; }
Output:
tanh(1.000000,0.000000) = (0.761594,0.000000) (tanh(1) = 0.761594) tanh(0.000000,1.000000) = (0.000000,1.557408) ( tan(1) = 1.557408)
