# complex exponential/trigonometric

Is there any command equivalent to the Mathematica's "TrigToExp" and "ExpToTrig"? Where should I look for general support on complex exponential/trigonometric functions?

This works for me in Sage 4.5.3:

```
sage: x = var('x')
sage: t1 = cos(x)
sage: t2 = e^(I * x) / 2 / I - e^(-I * x) / 2 / I
sage: sageobj(t1._maxima_().exponentialize())
1/2*e^(-I*x) + 1/2*e^(I*x)
sage: sageobj(t2._maxima_().demoivre())
sin(x)
```

Perhaps there's a simpler way? I don't think we've wrapped Maxima's `demoivre`

and `exponentialize`

in Sage. They're documented here.

I've opened #10038 (http://trac.sagemath.org/sage_trac/ticket/10038).

Hi, just wondering if any work has been done on this yet? It's been a while, so I thought there may be some updates. Anyway, I'm a total exponentiation geek (or call me anti-trigonometric freak if you like), so a simple TrigToExp function in Sage would be nice.
