# Transcendental Functions

When applying calculus one often ends up dealing with so-called **transcendental functions**. These are functions that cannot be obtained as a fractional power of a rational function. The most prominent examples are the exponential, hyperbolic and trigonometric functions, along with their respective inverses. As these functions are ubiquitous in applications, one has much to gain by becoming familiar with their properties.
