## Theorem

Let $z \in \C$ be a complex number.

Then:

- $e^{i z} = \cos z + i \sin z$

## Proof

As Sine Function is Absolutely Convergent and Cosine Function is Absolutely Convergent, we have:

\(\ds \cos z + i \sin z\) | \(=\) | \(\ds \sum_{n \mathop = 0}^\infty \paren {-1}^n \dfrac {z^{2 n} } {\paren {2 n}!} + i \sum_{n \mathop = 0}^\infty \paren {-1}^n \dfrac {z^{2 n + 1} } {\paren {2 n + 1}!}\) | Definition of Complex Cosine Function and Definition of Complex Sine Function | |||||||||||

\(\ds \) | \(=\) | \(\ds \sum_{n \mathop = 0}^\infty \paren {\paren {-1}^n \dfrac {z^{2 n} } {\paren {2 n}!} + i \paren {-1}^n \dfrac {z^{2 n + 1} } {\paren {2 n + 1}!} }\) | Sum of Absolutely Convergent Series | |||||||||||

\(\ds \) | \(=\) | \(\ds \sum_{n \mathop = 0}^\infty \paren {\dfrac {\paren {i z}^{2 n} } {\paren {2 n}!} + \dfrac {\paren {i z}^{2 n + 1} } {\paren {2 n + 1}!} }\) | Definition of Imaginary Unit | |||||||||||

\(\ds \) | \(=\) | \(\ds \sum_{n \mathop = 0}^\infty \dfrac {\paren {i z}^n} {n!}\) | ||||||||||||

\(\ds \) | \(=\) | \(\ds e^{i z}\) | Definition of Complex Exponential Function |
