Infinite Products and Elementary Functions

  • Yuri A. Melnikov


The objective in this chapter is to lay out a working background for dealing with infinite products and their possible applications. The reader will be familiarized with a specific topic that is not often included in traditional texts on related courses of mathematical analysis, namely the infinite product representation of elementary functions.
