    Are you trying to solve for u and v in terms of x and y?

    No! The oposite this! I'm trying to solve for x and y in terms of u and v!

    That's exactly what you already have:
    x = a exp(+u) cosh(v)
    y = b exp(-u) sinh(v)

    But I want to express x and y only in terms of u and v, only! I don't know what's the coefficients a and b in terms of u and v...
