A Few Finite Trigonometric Sums by Chandan Datta and Pankaj Agrawal

Finite trigonometric sums occur in various branches of physics, mathematics, and their applications. These sums may contain various powers of one or more trigonometric functions. Sums with one trigonometric function are known, however sums with products of trigonometric functions can get complicated and may not have a simple expressions in a number of cases. Some of these sums have interesting properties and can have amazingly simple value. However, only some of them are available in literature. We obtain a number of such sums using method of residues.
