# jax.numpy.tanhÂ¶

jax.numpy.tanh(x)Â¶

Compute hyperbolic tangent element-wise.

LAX-backend implementation of tanh(). Original docstring below.

tanh(x, /, out=None, *, where=True, casting=â€™same_kindâ€™, order=â€™Kâ€™, dtype=None, subok=True[, signature, extobj])

Equivalent to np.sinh(x)/np.cosh(x) or -1j * np.tan(1j*x).

Parameters

x (array_like) â€“ Input array.

Returns

y â€“ The corresponding hyperbolic tangent values. This is a scalar if x is a scalar.

Return type

ndarray

Notes

If out is provided, the function writes the result into it, and returns a reference to out. (See Examples)

Examples

>>> np.tanh((0, np.pi*1j, np.pi*1j/2))
array([ 0. +0.00000000e+00j,  0. -1.22460635e-16j,  0. +1.63317787e+16j])

>>> # Example of providing the optional output parameter illustrating
>>> # that what is returned is a reference to said parameter
>>> out1 = np.array([0], dtype='d')
>>> out2 = np.tanh([0.1], out1)
>>> out2 is out1
True

>>> # Example of ValueError due to provision of shape mis-matched out
>>> np.tanh(np.zeros((3,3)),np.zeros((2,2)))
