The hyperbolic cosine function is the function $\cosh \;\colon\; \mathbb{R} \to \mathbb{R}$ from the real numbers to themselves which is characterized by the following condition:
$\cosh$ is the unique solution among smooth functions to the differential equation/initial value problem
(where a prime indicates the derivative) subject to the initial conditions
