Complex PlaneFirst version of Complex Plane "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #2 20131002 12:56:57
Re: Complex PlaneHi MIF; 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. #3 20131002 13:26:38
Re: Complex PlaneWaiting for the hypercomplex plane to come soon 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.' 'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it' 'Who are you to judge everything?' Alokananda #4 20131002 14:03:15
Re: Complex Plane
I think so too ... maybe move all the multiplication sections? "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #5 20131002 16:34:29

Re: Complex Planehi MathsIsFun You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #7 20131002 20:20:17
Re: Complex PlaneGood advice. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #8 20131008 08:13:03
Re: Complex PlaneOK ... wrote a new page: Complex Number Multiplication "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #9 20131008 10:54:23

Re: Complex PlaneHas "r": http://www.encyclopediaofmath.org/index.php/De_Moivre_formula "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #11 20131008 18:13:51

Re: Complex PlaneI prefer it with "r" too. Let's just ignore Wikipedia "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #13 20131008 23:09:35

Re: Complex PlaneGreat page, but I suggest keeping both of them. I have discovered a truly marvellous signature, which this margin is too narrow to contain. Fermat Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world. Archimedes Young man, in mathematics you don't understand things. You just get used to them.  Neumann #15 20131009 03:55:39

Re: Complex PlaneMost people barely know much of actual pure math, much less the history of it. I have discovered a truly marvellous signature, which this margin is too narrow to contain. Fermat Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world. Archimedes Young man, in mathematics you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Complex PlaneThe 2 go hand in hand. Without knowing the history and the people it just seems like an extraordinarily hard puzzle, something abstract and foreign. Math is put into its proper prospect when you learn about the men/women who did it and why. 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.
