Re: Prove the following
Hey anil86.

I'd suggest you take a look at the sum-to-product and product-to-sum identities (and keeping in mind the relation cos(ix) and cosh(x) and so on).

Re: Prove the following
Restating the problem:Given
$\sin (\theta +i \varphi )=\tan \alpha + i \sec \alpha$
or
$\sin \theta \cosh \varphi = \tan \alpha$
$\cos \theta \sinh \varphi = \sec \alpha$
Show
$\cos 2\theta \cosh 2\varphi = 3$

Let
$a=\cos ^2\theta \text{ }$ and $b=\sin ^2\theta$

$c=\cosh ^2\varphi$ and $d=\sinh ^2\varphi$

so that

$a+b=1$

$c-d=1$

$a d - b c = 1$

$a-b=\cos 2\theta$

$c+d= \cosh 2\varphi$

Now use the identity

$(a-b)(c+d)=2(a d-b c)+(a+b)(c-d)$
