sinh(x), x REAL or a structure with REAL components

Keywords: transformations
sinh(x) returns the hyperbolic sine of the elements of x, when x is a
REAL scalar, vector, matrix or array.  The result has the same shape as
x.  In terms of other functions, sinh(x) = (exp(x) - exp(-x))/2.

If any element of x is MISSING or > 710.4758600739439 in absolute value,
the corresponding element of sinh(x) is MISSING and a warning message is

When x is a structure, all of whose non-structure components are REAL,
sinh(x) is a structure of the same shape and with the same component
names as x, with each non-structure component transformed by sinh().

See topic 'transformations' for more information on sinh().
