## Cosine

The cosine is a projection of the complex number $exp(−ix)$ (which is a point on the unit circle in the complex plane) to the real axis on the complex plane. In the following interactive figure, you can drag the point $x$ on the real axis and observe the behavior of the complex number $exp(−ix)$ and the varying value of $\cos(x)$.
