Do they have a mathematical name and which mathematician has investigated them ? A short link would be really nice from you, Greetings from Corona-times, I live only in the night like a vampir

In my opinion both are double periodically function, for both they are suitable with complex numbers and the "Ordnung" (order) is "flexible". Would be nice if someone gives me a mathematical hint.
