COMPLEX NUMBERS. Consider the quadratic equation; x 2 1 ¡ 0. It has no solutions in the real number system since x 2 вг 1 or x де жзззз. 1 ий j j 1 ie. j2 1. (b) If z = a + ib is the complex number, then a and b are called real and Addition of complex numbers satisfies the following properties. One way of introducing the field C of complex numbers is via the arithmetic of 2 × 2 matrices. DEFINITION A complex number is a matrix of the form. [ x −y.

Abstract. This article discusses some introductory ideas associated with complex numbers, their algebra and geometry. This includes a look at their importance. Roots of unity. The relation- ship between exponential and trigonometric functions. The geometry of the Argand diagram. 1 The Need For Complex Numbers.

This is a real loss: Commutativity is a kind of algebraic symmetry, and symmetry is always a useful property in mathematical structures.

But with these relationships in place, we gain a system where we can add, subtract, multiply and divide much as we did with complex numbers. To add and subtract quaternions, we collect like terms as before.

To multiply we still use the distributive property: It just requires a little more distributing. And to divide quaternions, we still use the idea of the conjugate to find the reciprocal, because just as with complex numbers, the product of any quaternion with its conjugate is a real number.

And like the complex numbers, the quaternions are surprisingly useful: They can be used to model the rotation of three-dimensional space, which makes them invaluable in rendering digital landscapes and spherical video, and in positioning and orienting objects like spaceships and cellphones in our three-dimensional world.

And just as with the quaternions, we need some special rules to govern how to multiply all the imaginary units.

Like the quaternions, octonion multiplication is not commutative. But extending our idea of number out to the octonions costs us the associativity of multiplication as well. When would anyone ever use that? Well, some physicists believe that the octonions may hold the key to describing how the strong, weak and electromagnetic forces act on quarks, leptons and their anti-particles.

When would anyone ever use that? Well, some physicists believe that the octonions may hold the key to describing how the strong, weak and electromagnetic forces act on quarks, leptons and their anti-particles. If true, this could help resolve one of the great mysteries in modern physics. By repeatedly extending the real numbers to create larger systems — the complex numbers, the quaternions, the octonions — in which we can add, subtract, multiply and divide, we lose a little familiarity with each step.

Along the way, we may also lose touch with what we think of as real. But what we gain are new ways of thinking about the world.

And we can always find a use for that. Under what conditions on a and b would this be equal to i? Can you find the other two cube roots of —1?This work does not cover all aspects pertaining to complex numbers. Andrica and N. Among the techniques presented, for example, are those for the real and the complex product of complex numbers. While linear equations are always solvable in real numbers, not all quadratic equations have this property. Until the 18th century, mathematicians avoided quadratic equations that were not solvable over R.
