rewrites products and powers of trigonometric functions in expr in terms of trigonometric functions with combined arguments.
Details and Options
- TrigReduce operates on both circular and hyperbolic functions.
- Given a trigonometric polynomial, TrigReduce typically yields a linear expression involving trigonometric functions with more complicated arguments.
- TrigReduce automatically threads over lists, as well as equations, inequalities and logic functions.

Hyperbolic trigonometric expressions:
TrigReduce threads over lists:
TrigReduce threads over equations, inequalities and logical operations:
Find the period of a trigonometric polynomial:
FunctionPeriod gives a multiple of the minimal period:
Reducing the expression helps to find the minimal period:
Periodicity can also be observed from the plots of the original function and the shifted function:
