A calculation gives me the following as a part of the output that I see
on the screen: (i = Imaginary)
-0.262484 i Exp[-0.951249 i t] + 0.262484 i Exp[0.951249 i t]
I want to apply ExpToTrig and , of course, end up with 0 for the Cosine
part and - .262484*2 Sin [0.951249] for the Sine part ...
instead I get (which I decided to look at output with InputForm)
(-0.2624844042359744*I)*Cos[0.9512492197250393*t] +
(0.26248440423597375*I)*Cos[0.9512492197250397*t] -
0.2624844042359744*Sin[0.9512492197250393*t] -
0.26248440423597375*Sin[0.9512492197250397*t]
I can see from this that the coefficients and exponent numbers are very
close but not identical although , I think, in theory they should be.
I'm not worried about the 10th decimal place. How do i get the result
I want in a general way?
thanks....jerry blimbaum
