# Relationship between sin and sinh

From specialfunctionswiki

## Theorem

The following formula holds: $$\sin(z)=-i \sinh(iz),$$ where $\sin$ denotes the sine and $\sinh$ denotes the hyperbolic sine.

## Proof

From the definition of $\sin$ and $\sinh$ and the reciprocal of i, $$-i\sinh(iz) = \dfrac{e^{iz}-e^{-iz}}{2i} =\sin(z),$$ as was to be shown.
