Complex NumbersCN # 1 where i=√(1)? Character is who you are when no one is looking. #2 20060306 15:51:07
Re: Complex Numbers"In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #3 20060306 16:18:53
Re: Complex NumbersWell Ricky, that was a cryptic answer. Character is who you are when no one is looking. #4 20060306 16:21:41
Re: Complex NumbersI thought we were doing complex numbers. "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #5 20060306 16:40:07
Re: Complex NumbersYes, we are, Ricky. Character is who you are when no one is looking. #6 20060306 16:41:08
Re: Complex NumbersHeh, yea, it was a bad pun. I gave a complex solution... "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #7 20060306 18:04:24

Re: Complex NumbersHi ganesh; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #13 20110727 19:14:57
