is an option for various polynomial manipulation functions that specifies whether trigonometric functions should be treated like polynomial elements.
- With Trig->True, trigonometric functions will be treated like polynomial elements by using their algebraic relations.

By default, Simplify uses trigonometric identities:
This simplifies the expression without using trigonometric identities:
By default, Expand expands out products and positive integer powers:
This also expands out trigonometric functions:
