    Moivre-Laplace formula
    exp(ix) = cos(x) + i sin(x),
    where i = (-1)^(1/2) , and which is widely used in different items of mathematics is usually deduced from the Maclaurin expansions of the functions involved.
    But the theory of Taylor (Maclaurin) expansions is a part of more general theory developed in the course of the functions of complex variable. As the Moivre-Laplace formula has numerous applications outside this theory, it seems reasonable to deduce it without references to Maclaurin series.

    Problem.

    To prove the Moivre-Laplace formula: exp(ix) = cos(x) + i sin(x) without use of the Maclaurin expansions.

    Solution

    Moivre-Laplace formula
    e ix = cos(x) + i sin(x),

    where i = , and which is widely used in different items of mathematics is usually deduced from the Maclaurin expansions of the functions involved:

    cos(x) = ; sin(x) = .
    As -1 = i2 , we have:

    cos(x) + i sin(x) = + and the sum of these two series can obviously be written as a single series

    = ,

    and the latter series is just the Maclaurin expansion of e ix .
    But the theory of Taylor (Maclaurin) expansions is a part of more general ...

    Solution Summary

    The Moivre-Laplace Formula is prven without the use of Maclaurin expansions.
