Consider a Mobius transformation Determine the constants a, b, c, and d, (all ), such that the transformation maps 0 i, −i 1, and −1 0. How would I work this out?

What's mapped to ? Looks like you forgot to type it.

Setting the cross products equal, I get (z-(-i))/z-(-1) x 0-(-1)/0-(-i) = (w-1)/(w-0) x (i-0)/(i-1) (z+i)/(iz+i) = (iw-i)/(iw-w) and getting w by itself w = (z+1)/(iz-i) a = 1, b = 1, c = i, d = -i
Multiply numerator and denominator by and you'll get my answer.
