TrigFactor

FilledSmallSquare TrigFactor[expr] factors trigonometric functions in expr.

FilledSmallSquare TrigFactor operates on both circular and hyperbolic functions.

FilledSmallSquare TrigFactor splits up sums and integer multiples that appear in arguments of trigonometric functions, and then factors resulting polynomials in trigonometric functions, using trigonometric identities when possible.

FilledSmallSquare See Section 1.4.5 and Section 3.3.7.

FilledSmallSquare See also: TrigExpand, TrigReduce, TrigToExp, Factor, Simplify, FullSimplify.
