Show that D [sin (ax -\- b)] = a sin (ax + b + j-π). Deduce that D w [sin (ax + b)] = an sin (ax -f- b + ^ηπ). Express T>n [cos (ax + 6)] in this form. 2:4 Exponentials, logarithms and hyperbolic functions The exponential function. , we define e x p (a;) as t h e function which is equal t o its own derivative a n d takes t h e value u n i t y when x = 0 . The unique function which satisfies t h e above conditions m a y be shown (see § 5:5) t o be expressible as a n infinite series in t h e form «Ρ(*) = 1 + X π + X ίΡ^ 2Γ+-3Γ + - + Χ^ 1ίΓ + ···.
