Addition theorem


Addition theorem: In mathematics, an addition theorem is a formula such as that for the exponential function e = e·e that expresses, for a particular function f, f in terms of f and f. Slightly more generally, as is the case with the trigonometric functions sin and cos, several functions may be involved; this is more apparent than real, in that case, since there cos is an algebraic function of sin.
