This was first noticed in 1714 by the young Englishman Roger Cotes, two years before his death at the age of 28 (when Newton remarked clf Cotes had lived we might have known something'), and made widely known through an influential book published by Euler in 1748. Let z = cos 9 + j sin 9. Since j behaves like any other constant in algebraic manipulation, to differentiate z with respect to 9 you simply differentiate the real and imaginary parts separately. This gives So z = cos 9 + j sin 9 is a solution of the differential equation If j continues to behave like any other constant when it is used as an index, then the general solution of where c is a constant, just as is the general solution of Therefore 45 3 Putting 0 = 0 gives cos 0 + j sin 0 = e°+c and it follows that The problem with this argument is that you have no way of knowing how j behaves as an index.

Since no meaning has yet been given to ez when z is complex, the following definition can be made, suggested by this work with differential equations but not dependent on it: Note The particular case when 9 = n gives ej71 = COSTT + jsinTi = -1, so that This remarkable statement, linking the five fundamental numbers 0, 1, j, e, n, the three fundamental operations of addition, multiplication and exponentiation, and the fundamental relation of equality, has been described as a 'mathematical poem'.

EXERCISE 3A In Questions 1-16, find the modulus and principal argument. Give the argument in radians, either as a simple rational multiple ofn or correct to 3 decimal places. 3 17 Given that arg(5 + 2j) = a, find the principal argument of each of the following in terms of a. In Questions 18-22, write the complex numbers in polar form. 23 (i) Given that z = cos 9 + j sin 0, plot the points 0, 1, z, 1 + z on an Argand diagram. What sort of quadrilateral do these points form? Hence find the modulus and argument of 1 + cos 9 + j sin 9.
