``` 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).xls This implementation using LN, give THE SAME results that function asinh(x) linux native.

``` 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))));     } } ```
