How to trace the graphic of $\cos(x) + \cosh(y) = k$?

Is there some systematic way to trace the graphic of $\cos(x) + \cosh(y) = k$ given a fixed value for $k$? Suppose $k = 1$: if I choose empirically $y = 1.2$, I know that should be $\cos(x) = - ...

Complex Numbers and Hyperbolic Functions

How would you evaluate: $\mathfrak{R}\left[(1+i)\sin\left(\dfrac{(2+i)\pi}{4}\right)\right]$? I know that $\cos x = \dfrac{e^{ix}+e^{-ix}}{2}$ and $\sin x = \dfrac{e^{ix}-e^{-ix}}{2i}$. I have also ...

Is this a typo, or am I missing something?

I have a handout for my precalc II class. It says $\sinh(-x) = -\sin(x)$ It should be $\sinh(-x) = -\sinh(x)$ right? I don't see how a negative input could make a hyperbolic function circular.

How are the sine functions along with the hyperbolic functions visualized with imaginary rotations?

Since we know that: cos(t)=cosh(it) and isin(t)=sinh(it) I've been thinking about this, and obviously this is referring to how if you move at a right angle from a circle on a conic section, you end ...

Geometric interpretation of hyperbolic functions

When proving identities like $$\cosh(2x)=\cosh^2(x)+\sinh^2(x)$$ $$\cosh^2(x)=\sinh^2(x)+1$$ algebraically, I am beset by the feeling that there should be a geometrical interpretation that makes them ...
