2D plots along the axes and unit circle

On the real axis

The function along the real axis. is an oscillating periodic function with period .

The absolute value and the argument of along the real axis. The left graphic shows and the right graphic shows . The argument is piecewise constant.

On the real axis at infinity

The function along the real axis. At , the function has an essential singularity and oscillates infinitely often.

The absolute value and the argument of along the real axis. The left graphic shows and the right graphic shows . The argument is piecewise constant.

On the imaginary axes

The real part and the imaginary part of along the imaginary axis. The left graphic shows and the right graphic shows . Along the imaginary axis, is real and exponentially increasing.

The absolute value and the argument of along the imaginary axis. The left graphic shows and the right graphic shows . Because is real on the imaginary axis, the argument is constant.

On the imaginary axis at infinity
