# Definition:Inverse Hyperbolic Cosecant/Complex/Principal Branch

## Definition

The principal branch of the complex inverse hyperbolic cosecant function is defined as:

$\forall z \in \C_{\ne 0}: \map \Arcsch z := \map \Ln {\dfrac {1 + \sqrt {z^2 + 1} } z}$

where:

$\Ln$ denotes the principal branch of the complex natural logarithm
$\sqrt {z^2 + 1}$ denotes the principal square root of $z^2 + 1$.
