# Definition:Sine/Complex Function

## Definition

The complex function $\sin: \C \to \C$ is defined as:

 $\ds \sin z$ $=$ $\ds \sum_{n \mathop = 0}^\infty \paren {-1}^n \frac {z^{2 n + 1 } } {\paren {2 n + 1}!}$ $\ds$ $=$ $\ds z - \frac {z^3} {3!} + \frac {z^5} {5!} - \frac {z^7} {7!} + \cdots + \paren {-1}^n \frac {z^{2 n + 1 } } {\paren {2 n + 1}!} + \cdots$
