• a curve one of whose coördinates is a trigonometric function of the other.
• See under Function.
• lines which are employed in solving the different cases of plane and spherical trigonometry, as sines, tangents, secants, and the like. These lines, or the lengths of them, are trigonometrical functions of the arcs and angles to which they belong.
• See under Survey.

## Examples

• The six functions just defined are variously known as the trigonometric, circular, or goniometric functions

• It should be noticed that while a, b, and h are lines, the ratio of any two of them is an abstract number; that is, the trigonometric functions are abstract numbers.

• It should be noticed that while a, b, and h are lines, the ratio of any two of them is an abstract number; that is, the trigonometric functions are abstract numbers.

• On the other hand, the trigonometric functions are better seen as the coordinate functions of a point traveling around the unit circle at unit speed.

• And so there must be some equation relating the exponential to the trigonometric functions.

• They thought they could just proceed from there, but things got messy (sorry) as they cut the pizza more times, or, as New Scientist puts it, “the solution still included a complicated set of sums of algebraic series involving tricky powers of trigonometric functions,” summed up more succinctly as “ugly.”

• It has to do with what happens when you do Taylor series expansions of trigonometric functions of imaginary numbers.

• When trigonometric functions are added, then the number of nines can greatly increase.
