Let z be a non-real complex number lying on the circle |z| = 1. Then prove that : z = \(\frac{ 1 + i \tan ( \frac{ arg(z)}{2} )}{1 - i \tan ( \frac{arg(z)}{2})}\)

    non-real complex? do you mean just imaginary?

    I was able to prove by taking RHS and simplifying and simplifying it into such a form which was exactly equivalent to the LHS i.e. 'z' But , the book says this is not a method of proving infact it is a method of "verifying" ... :(

    First thing to do is rationalize the denominator. Multiply top and bottom by 1 + i . tan(Arg(z)/2)

    @AravindG yes I tried that and got : \[\large{\frac{z}{\cos \theta} = 1 + i \tan \theta }\]

    @AravindG : Say : z = \(\cos \theta + i \sin \theta \) Divide both sides by cos theta \(\large{\frac{z}{\cos \theta} = \frac{\cos \theta + i\sin \theta}{\cos \theta}}\)

    ^ This will give us : \[\large{\frac{z}{\cos\theta} = 1 + i\tan\theta}\]

    which I can also write as : \[\large{\frac{z}{\cos\theta} = 1 + i \tan (arg(z))}\]

    To get the numerator (see the RHS of required to prove equation) ... now I will go for denominator

    What I am suggesting is this. Let the left hand side be called \( w \). Then \[ w = \frac{ 1 + i \tan ( \frac{ arg(z)}{2} )}{1 - i \tan ( \frac{arg(z)}{2})} . \frac{ 1 + i \tan ( \frac{ arg(z)}{2} )}{1 + i \tan ( \frac{arg(z)}{2})} \] \[ = \frac{ (1 + i \tan ( \frac{ arg(z)}{2} ))^2}{1 + \tan^2(\arg(z)/2)} \] \[ = \frac{1 - \tan^2(\arg(z)/2) + 2i \tan(\arg(z)/2)}{\sec^2(\arg(z)/2)} \] Then the tan of the argument of \( w \) is \[ \tan(\arg(w)) = \frac{2 \tan(\arg(z)/2)}{1 - \tan^2(\arg(z)/2)} = \tan(\arg(z)) \] and hence \( w \) and \(z\) have the same same arguments Now you just need to show that \( |w| = |z| \) and then it will follow that \( w = z \).

    OK mistake there it is : \[\large{\frac{z + \cos\theta}{2\cos\theta} = 1 + i \tan \frac{\theta}{2}}\]

    still y did you go for this ? you could have got it from 1st eqn itself using \(\tan 2 \theta \) formula

    and then I will subtract \(i\tan\frac{\theta}{2}\) both sides so that I get : \[\large{\frac{z+ \cos\theta - 2i\tan\theta}{2\cos\theta} = 1 -i\tan\frac{\theta}{2}}\]

    Let the complex number be \[\bf \large z=\cos \theta +i \sin \theta\] \[\bf \large z=\cos^2 \theta-\sin^2 \theta +i(2\sin \dfrac{\theta}{2}\cos \dfrac{\theta}{2})\] \[\bf \large z=(\cos \dfrac{\theta}{2}+i \sin \dfrac{\theta}{2})^2\] \[\bf \large =(\cos \dfrac{\theta}{2}+i \sin \dfrac{\theta}{2})(\cos \dfrac{\theta}{2}+i \sin \dfrac{\theta}{2})\] =\[\bf \large =\dfrac{\cos \dfrac{\theta}{2}+i \sin \dfrac{\theta}{2}}{\cos \dfrac{\theta}{2}-i \sin \dfrac{\theta}{2}}\] \[\bf \large =\dfrac{1+ i \tan \dfrac{\theta}{2}}{1- i \tan \dfrac{\theta}{2}}\] \[\bf \large z=\dfrac{1+i \tan \dfrac{\arg(z)}{2}}{1+i \tan \dfrac{\arg(z)}{2}}\]
