Sines and cosines of sums of infinitely many terms  In thes e two identities an as y mmetry appears that is not s een in the c as e of s ums of finitely many terms : in eac h produc t, there are only finitely many s ine fac tors and c ofinitely many c os ine fac tors . If only finitely many of the terms θi are nonz ero, then only finitely many of the terms on the right s ide will be nonz ero bec aus e s ine fac tors will vanis h, and in eac h term, all but finitely many of the c os ine fac tors will be unity .

For ex ample: and s o on. The c as e of only finitely many terms c an be proved by mathematic al induc tion.[15] Secants and cosecants of sums  where ek is the k th-degree elementary s y mmetric poly nomial in the n variables xi = tan θi ,i = 1, ..., n, and the number of terms in the denominator and the number of fac tors in the produc t in the numerator depend on the number of terms in the s um on the left. The c as e of only finitely many terms c an be proved by mathematic al induc tion on the number of s uc h terms . The c onvergenc e of the s eries in the denominators c an be s hown by writing the s ec ant identity in the form and then obs erving that the left s ide c onverges if the right s ide c onverges , and s imilarly for the c os ec ant identity .
