RE: How to get the real and imaginary parts of a power series?


Hello Gordon,

I think the problem is because of O(u^3) which makes it difficult to do 
further job with s.

This works fine, but there is no O(u^3) anymore written :

Clear[s]
s = Normal[Series[Cosh[(x + I*y)*u], {u, 0, 2}]]

ComplexExpand[s]

Objet=A0: [mg79998] How to get the real and imaginary parts of a power series?

Suppose s = Series[Cosh[(x + I y)u, {u,0,2}]. How can I get the real 
part 1 + 1/2(x^2 - y^2) u^2 + O(u^3) and the imaginary part x y u^2 + 
O(u^3) ? I thought ComplexExpand[Re[s]] should give me the real part of 
s, but it just gives me s unchanged. (Mathematica newbie here!)
