INFORMATION ABOUT THE CALCULATION DEVICE, AND RELATED INSTRUCTIONS: This calculation device calculates the hyperbolic sine, cosine, tangent, cotangent, secant, and cosecant, as soon as the user enters a number in the white input box below, and clicks with the mouse. Each of the six calculations, are performed in two ways, one is with the conventional formulas used for the hyperbolic functions, which are based on e (e = 2.718281828459050). The other method was based on the Microsoft Excel built-in functions. Surprisingly, both of the above produced identical results down to 14 decimal places, (with my Dell dual processor 64-bit computer.) With functions of this type, it is not uncommon to see slight discrepancies beyond the eighth or ninth decimal place, due to rounding errors by the computer and software.
NOTE: This calculation device, displays very large and very small numbers, in scientific notation, using the letter e, such as: 1.3440585709080606e+43.
ANOTHER INTERESTING CONCEPT: As stated above, the conventional formulas, use by this software to calculate the hyperbolic functions, are based on e (e = 2.718281828459050). You can delete the e in the pink input box below, and replace it with any number you choose. When this is done, you are no longer calculating the hyperbolic functions with these formulas, and the text labels on the formulas change accordingly. For example, if there is a 3 in the white input box, and you replace the e with a 2 in the pink input box, the labels on the six formulas will change as follows:
Formula 1) from sinch(3) to FunctionS^(3)
Formula 2) from cosh(3) to FunctionC^(3)
Formula 3) from tanh(3) to FunctionT^(3)
Formula 4) from coth(3) to Function-CT^(3)
Formula 5) from sech(3) to Function-SC^(3)
Formula 6) from csch(3) FunctionCS^(3)
