Lagrange's trigonometric identities [edit] Thes e identities , named after Jos eph Louis Lagrange, are:[28][29] A related func tion is the following func tion of x, c alled the Diric hlet k ernel. Other sums of trigonometric f unctions [edit] Sum of s ines and c os ines with arguments in arithmetic progres s ion:[30] if , then For any a and b : where atan2(y, x) is the generaliz ation of arc tan(y/x) that c overs the entire c irc ular range. The above identity is s ometimes c onvenient to k now when think ing about the Gudermannian func tion, whic h relates the c irc ular and hy perbolic trigonometric func tions without res orting toc omplex numbers . If x, y, and z are the three angles of any triangle, i.e. if x + y + z = π, then Certain linear f ractional transf ormations [edit] If ƒ(x) is given by the linear frac tional trans formation and s imilarly then More ters ely s tated, if for all α we let ƒα be what we c alled ƒ above, then If x is the s lope of a line, then ƒ(x) is the s lope of its rotation through an angle of − α.
