 Author Comment/Response Pascal 06/15/13 10:30am Hi, i have the following problem, that i can't seem to figure out. I have terms of the type: (1/(4 g i))Sqrt[3] E^(-I phi) Cos[theta/2]^2 Sin[psi/2]^3 Sin[theta/ 2] (-12 (-1 + E^(2 I phi)) Cos[psi/2] - 4 (-1 + E^(2 I phi)) Cos[(3 psi)/2] + I Sin[psi/ 2] (-E^(I phi) Sin[2 psi - (3 theta)/2] - 4 I (-1 + E^(2 I phi)) Sin[psi - theta] - E^(I phi) Sin[2 psi - theta/2] + 14 E^(I phi) Sin[theta/2] - 2 E^(I phi) Sin[(3 theta)/2] + 4 I Sin[psi + theta] - 4 I E^(2 I phi) Sin[psi + theta] + E^(I phi) Sin[1/2 (4 psi + theta)] + E^(I phi) Sin[2 psi + (3 theta)/2])) and i would like factor out everything, that is independent of theta, to obtain something of the form: X[psi,phi]*(a*Sin[theta]+b*Cos[theta]+c*Sin[3*theta/8]+...) How could this be done? Thanks in advance Pascal URL: ,
