Definition. For z ∈ C we define cos z = 1 iz (e + e−iz ); 2 sin z = 1 iz (e − e−iz ); 2i cosh z = 1 z (e + e−z ); 2 sinh z = 1 z (e − e−z ).

Remark In all of what follows we will make use of the fundamental identity (∗) ez+w = ez ew , z, w ∈ C.

Here is a proof of (*) in which we leave out the nontrivial justification of some of the steps. We have ez+w = =

= ez ew . From the definitions we immediately deduce that (1) and that (2) cos2 z + sin2 z = 1, cosh2 z − sinh2 z = 1. eiz = cos z + i sin z

From (*) we obtain the addition formulae (3) sin(z + w) = sin z cos w + cos z sin w, cos(z + w) = cos z cos w − sin z sin w.

Differentiating term by term the power series that define the exponential function we find that (4) d z e = ez . dz

d One could also use (*) to deduce (4). For any constant a we have dz f (az) = af (az) provided f is differentiable in the complex; this fact, (1) and the definitions immediately imply that
