The question: such that w is a complex number I tried using the identity to get a solution, but it appears to create a mess. :/ Any assistance would be great.

(Where has the question come from?) It's part of a complex analysis question: Show that the function f defined by maps the unit circle onto the interval [-2, 2]

Because on the unit circle, .
Oh, right. >_< I need stronger coffee.

Ahh, thanks.
