(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Show that

[tex] \frac{\sin (az)}{\sin (\pi z)} = \frac{2}{\pi} \sum_{n=1}^{+\infty} (-1)^n \frac{n \sin (an)}{z^2 - n^2} [/tex]

for all a such that [tex] - \pi < a < \pi [/tex]

2. Relevant equations

None really, we have similar expansions for [tex]\pi cot (\pi z)[/tex] and [tex] \pi / \sin (\pi z) [/tex], this is an excersize in using Mittag-Leffler's theorem.

3. The attempt at a solution

My problem is that I can't show the series is uniformly convergent on every compact subset of C. Once that's done I've got a solution for every rational multiple of pi, which I think can be extended to all real a with a continuity argument. Any thoughts on the convergence problem? It's driving me mad.
