complex numbersThis is something that's been bothering me for some time, and I thought starting a post on in might help me out. I'm not posting it in the "Help Me" forum, because instead of a question, I was hoping for an open dialog. If some one feels this is the wrong place, then pleas move it to "Help Me." From that: That said: Also: Which shows: With a similar method (that is kind of tedious to do out) I found: I get how to find the kth root of any imaginary number, but I can't make a general rule, I have to do each out by hand. Using Taylor series I can show : And from there I think I get k^i, but only if k is a real number. which leaves me with the following questions: That last one is a calculator answer, but why? Any other I properties would be fun to see, so if anyone else has something to offer, please, I'd like to learn as much as I can about complex numbers. There are 10 types of people in the world, those who understand binary, those who don't, and those who can use induction. #2 20070811 06:01:42
