MATH 185: COMPLEX ANALYSIS FALL 2009/10 PROBLEM SET 1 SOLUTIONS Throughout the problem set, i = - 1; and whenever we write α + βi , it is implicit that α, β R . 1. Determine the values of the following (without the aid of any electronic devices). (a) (1 + i ) 20 - (1 - i ) 20 . Solution. (1 + i ) 20 - (1 - i ) 20 = [(1 + i ) 2 ] 10 - [(1 - i ) 2 ] 10 = (2 i ) 10 - ( - 2 i ) 10 = 0 . (b) cos 1 4 π + i cos 3 4 π + · · · + i n cos( 2 n +1 4 ) π + · · · + i 40 cos 81 4 π. Solution. Write a n = i n cos( 2 n +1 4 ) π . Note that a n +2 = - i n cos ( 2 n +1 4 ) π + π = i n cos( 2 n +1 4 ) π = a n . So a 0 = a 2 = · · · = a 40 , a 1 = a 3 = · · · = a 39 , and a 0 + a 1 + · · · + a 40 = 21 a 0 + 20 a 1 = 2 2 (21 - 20 i ) . (c) 1 + 2 i + 3 i 2 + · · · + ( m + 1) i m where m is divisible by 4. Solution. Let S be the sum. Then S = 1 + 2 i + 3 i 2 + · · · + ( m + 1) i m , iS = i + 2 i 2 + · · · + mi m + ( m + 1) i m +1 . Subtracting the second equation from the first yields (1 - i ) S = 1 + i + i 2 + · · · + i m - ( m + 1) i m +1 = 1 - i m +1 1 - i - ( m + 1) i m +1 = 1 - ( m + 1) i since i m = 1 if m is divisible by 4. Hence S = 1 - ( m + 1) i 1 - i × 1 + i 1 + i = 1 2 ( m + 2 - mi ) . 2. Use the exponential form of cos θ and sin θ to show the following. (a) Show that 1 + n cos θ + · · · + n ! r !( n - r )! cos + · · · + cos = (2 cos 1 2 θ ) n cos 1 2 nθ. Prove that, as n → ∞ , the series converges to 0 if 2 3 π < θ < 4 3 π .

What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
