Is it possible to integrate analytically this equation:

integrate [exp(-zcosh(t)] dt

where z is a constant?

Thanks for your help.

Hello there!

Well, I plugged this integration into our big fancy computer program
(Mathematica) and asked it what it could do.  It couldn't do anything on
it, so I suspect it's not doable by analytic methods.  Hope this helps!
