# Euler's identity

Not what you're looking for?

Recall the Taylor series Sum(x^n/n!). The same series can be used to define e^z for a complex number z=a+bi.

Use the Taylor series to show that exp(iy) = cos(y) + i sin(y) for any real number y. To do this substitute iy into the series and compute several terms. Look for patterns.
