a question about complex variable

  • To: mathgroup at

In my algebra computation, I obtain a expression:
C = (- I Cos[2 P] - Sin[2 P]) Tan[A]
P,A are real variables. Apperently, the argument of C is -2(P+Pi/4) and the
absolute value of C is Tan[A]. But when I use Arg[C] and Abs[C], Mathematica
tells me:

Out[41]=Abs[(-I Cos[2 P] - Sin[2 P]) Tan[A]]
Out[42]=Arg[(-I Cos[2 P] - Sin[2 P]) Tan[A]]

This problem appeared at beginning of the computation. I have no idea to deal
with it, so the expressions become longer and longer during the computation.
Can somebody help me?
