1.48 Using Euler’s relation, we have:

z0 = r0 ejθ0 = r0 cos θ0 + jr0 sin θ0 = x0 + jy0

Then z1 through z5 are:


q
(a) z1 = x0 − jy0 (b) z2 = x20 + y02
(c) z3 = −x0 − jy0 = −z0 (d) z4 = −x0 + jy0
(e) z5 = x0 + jy0 = z0 (recall, ejθ is periodic with period 2π)

1.49 Once in polar form rejθ , the magnitude is given by r and angle given by θ.

1.51 By Euler’s relation, we have

(i) ejθ = cos θ + j sin θ and (ii) e−jθ = cos θ − j sin θ

(a) Summing (i) + (ii) yields cos θ = 21 (ejθ + e−jθ ).


(b) Subtracting (i) - (ii) yields sin θ = 2j1 (ejθ − e−jθ ).
(e) From Euler’s relation: ej(θ+φ) = cos(θ + φ) + j sin(θ + φ). We can also write
ej(θ+φ) = ejθ ejφ
= (cos θ + j sin θ) (cos φ + j sin φ)
= (cos θ cos φ − sin θ sin φ) + j (sin θ cos φ + cos θ sin φ) .
Equating the real and imaginary parts of these two representations of ej(θ+φ) gives us the
“sum identities”:
cos(θ + φ) = cos θ cos φ − sin θ sin φ
sin(θ + φ) = sin θ cos φ + cos θ sin φ.

1.52 (c) z + z ∗ = x + jy + x − jy = 2x = 2Re {z}

(d) z − z ∗ = x + jy − x + jy = 2jy = 2jIm {z}



1.53 (a) (ez )∗ = (ex+jy )∗ = (ex ejy )∗ = ex e−jy = ex−jy = ez

(c) |z| = rejθ = |r| = re−jθ = |z ∗ | In words, taking the conjugate means flipping across

the real axis; this negates the angle, but does not affect the magnitude.

(d) |z1 z2 | = r1 r2 ej(θ1 +θ2 ) = |r1 r2 | = |r1 | |r2 | = |z1 | |z2 |

1.54 (a) Clearly, for α = 1, we have


PN −1 PN −1
n=0 αn = n=0 1=N

For α 6= 1, if we multiply the sum by (1 − α), we obtain:


PN −1 PN −1 PN −1
(1 − α) n=0 αn = n=0 αn − n=0 αn+1 = 1 − αN

since the α1 through αN −1 terms cancel out. Dividing both sides by (1 − α), we obtain the
desired result:
N −1
1 − αN
αn =
X

n=0 1−α
(b) Since |a| < 1, we know that

lim αN = 0.
N →∞

Referring to part (a), we


∞ N −1 N −1

αn = lim αn = lim
X X X

N →∞
n=0 1−α 1−α

(c) Since |a| < 1, the identity in part (b) holds. We differentiate both sides of part (b) with

respect to α to get

α = .
dα n=0 dα 1 − α
Evaluating the derivatives, we get

So,

(d) Again, since |a| < 1, the identity in part (b) holds. We use it to rewrite and evaluate

the given summation as

(b) n=−2 ejπn/2 = m=0 ejπ(m−2)/2 , using the substitution m = n+2 ⇒ n = m−2. Then,

(c) Here, use the result from Problem 1.54(b):

(e) Using the identity we proved in 1.51(a), we have
