Re: Plotting Cosh(x)?


In Mathematica, arguments of functions are enclosed in square brackets 
[] and NOT in parentheses () -- unless, that is, you're trying to use 
TraditionalForm input (which can be dangerous due to its possible 
ambiguity).

So you want:

   Plot[Cosh[x],{x,-1,1}]

In what you had, the parentheses are just grouping symbols, so the 
expression fed to Plot is a product of the symbols Cosh and x.
