    sinh Taylor Series

    Use the identity sinh(z+ \pi i)=-sinh(z) and the fact that sinh(z) has a period of 2\pi i to find the Taylor series for sinh(z) about z_0=\pi i.

    Clearly the numerator will be (z-z_0)^{2n+1}=(z-\pi i)^{2n+1} because of the periodicity, and the answer overall is going to be negative because of the given identity, but I'm not sure what the denominator is going to be here or how to justify it other than just saying that it's obvious from the definition of a Taylor series.

    Do you know the Taylor series for sinh(z) about z_0= 0?

    It's just the 2n+1 terms of the e^z expansion, which leads me to think that the denominator would just be (2n+1)!, although it seems like you could derive that without knowing anything about the periodicity.

    Thanks.
