I didn't see much topics on this subject.

If you know anything interesting about complex or you have a problem with them just post here.

Here are the rules of basic operations with compex numbers:

1)addition:

2)subtraction:

3)multiplication:

Hi,

A simple application is to derive multiple-angle formulas:

E,g.

"Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense" - Buddha?

Hi anonimnystefy,

Have you read about de Moivre's formula:

"Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense" - Buddha?

"Data! Data! Data!" he cried impatiently. "I can't make bricks without clay."

hi gAr

I read something but not all.
