Can you use something a bit more standard?
I'm a photographer; I need to incorporate a "complex" math formula into a picture I'm creating and found the following at Math.com under "Complex Definitions of Functions and Operations" :
tan(a + BI) = ( tan(a) + i tanh(b) ) / ( 1 - i tan(a) tanh(b))
= ( sech 2(b)tan(a) + sec 2(a)tanh(b) i ) / (1 + tan 2(a)tanh 2(b))
Rather than making an error in using something that makes little sense, I thought I'd ask here. I'm seeking something about that long. BTW, this is for a personal project about the level of awareness of math in children.
Say, thanks for the reply. I don't see why not, however, my curiosity begs the question:
what's wrong with the equation I found? Are you suggesting that mere mortals might have a better grasp of what you sent? On that note, I'd say it would make no difference.
Perhaps if I attach what I've created, you'll see what I mean:
Thanks, AND...I'm having a helluva time trying to write it out...can't figure how to have the squared iz's appear where they're supposed to and the numerator/denominator as well. It really needs to be imported in a higher res than I can get off the forum site page or I'll try a few fonts and other tricks but it may be a lost cause. More simply put it may not worth the trouble since you've acknowledged the formula I've got is not too bad. Again, I do appreciate the assistance. Ken
