Homework Statement


How to verify this trigonometric equation? tanh z/2?
verify that:

tanh (z/2) = [sinh x + i sin y] / [cosh x + cos y]


z is a complex number.

How can i verify this equation?

# sin(x + i y) = sin(x) cosh(y) + i cos(x) sinh(y).
# cos(x + i y) = cos(x) cosh(y) - i sin(x) sinh(y).
# tan(x + i y) = (tan(x) + i tanh(y)) / (1 - i tan(x) tanh(y)).
# cot(x + i y) = (cot(x) coth(y) - i) / (i cot(x) + coth(y)).




The Attempt at a Solution



i have tried to solve from right hand side but it didn't work, then i have simplified the equation tanh(z/2) = e^z-1 / e^z+1


if you help me, i will be appreciate.
thanx a lot.

tanh(z/2)=(e^z-1)/(e^z+1) is an ok place to start. Now substitute z=x+iy and multiply numerator and denominator by the conjugate of (e^z+1). Multiply everything out. Where does that take you? What you eventually need is cosh(ix)=cos(x) and sinh(ix)=i*sin(x) for x real.

What did you get? Did you multiply by the conjugate and collect terms? It works for me.

yes i did sir.

e^2(x+iy)-2e^(x+iy)+1 / e^2(x+iy)-1

did u mean complex conjugate ? or normal conjugate?

The conjugate of the denominator is (e^(x-iy)+1). It looks like you multiplied by (e^(x+iy)-1). Try the first way.

Complex. BTW, I suggested that because the denominator of the expression you are supposed to get is real. See why that's a clue?

ok result is

e^2x + e^(x+iy) - e^(x-iy)-1 / e^2x + e^(x+iy) + e^(x-iy)

There's a 1 in the denominator too. Factor e^(x+iy) etc into e^x*e^(iy). Divide numerator and denominator by e^(x). Is anything looking familiar yet? Don't be sorry, just try a little harder.
