Euler’s Formula


any of several important formulas established by L. Euler.

(1) A formula giving the relation between the exponential function and trigonometric functions (1743):

eix = cos x + i sin x

Also known as Euler’s formulas are the equations

(2) A formula giving the expansion of the function sin x in an infinite product (1740):

(3) The formula

where s = 1,2,... and p runs over all prime numbers.

(4) The formula

(a2 + b2 + c2 + d2)(p2 + q2 + r2 + s2) = x2 + y2 + z2 + t2


x = ap + bq + cr + ds

y = aqbp ± csdr

z = arbscp ± dq

t = as ± brcqdp

(5) The formula (1760)

Also known as the equation of Euler, it gives an expression for the curvature 1/R of a normal section of a surface in terms of the surface’s principal curvatures 1/R1 and 1/R2 and the angle φ between one of the principal directions and the given direction.

Other well-known formulas associated with Euler include the Euler-Maclaurin summation formula and the Euler-Fourier formulas for the coefficients of expansions of functions in trigonometric series.

The filter is implemented by two parallel, quadrature filter branches with each branch derived from a complex modulation of a low-pass-interpolated FIR filter by complex exponentials. The input signal is modulated with a sine/ cosine sequence in order to achieve the desired frequency shift in the frequency response.

This is done by first expanding the electric field spectrum in a Fourier series and next approximating the obtained Fourier series coefficients through a sum of complex exponentials using the generalized pencil-of-function (GPOF) method [15], which leads to a final sum of conical beams.
ESPRIT is a frequency estimation technique which is based on a harmonic model; that means that the considered signal consists of complex exponentials in noise.
From a circuit implementation perspective, two appealing choices for the basis functions [[PHI].sub.i] (t) are (i) those that consist of binary waveforms, and (ii) complex exponentials. Tones and binary signals are straightforward to produce in dedicated simple circuits, (3) with relatively low power consumption, avoiding the use of general purpose digital to analog conversion (DAC) to produce the [[PHI].sub.i] (t) waveforms.
The beam expansion of an aperture-radiated field is obtained by expanding the field spectrum in the aperture plane in terms of complex exponentials. The latter are obtained by the 2D Generalized Pencil of Function 2D-GPOF [2].
