# Derivative of Hyperbolic Secant

In this tutorial we shall prove derivative of hyperbolic secant function.

Let the function of the form

By definition of hyperbolic function, the hyperbolic secant function is defined as

Differentiating both sides with respect to the variable , we have

Using the formula of exponential differentiation , we have

By definition, and , we get

__Example__**:** Find the derivative of

We have the given function as

Differentiation with respect to variable , we get

Using the rule, , we get
