NAMEcomplex - basics of complex mathematics
DESCRIPTIONComplex numbers are numbers of the form z = a+b*i, where a and b are real numbers and i = sqrt(-1), so that i*i = -1.
There are other ways to represent that number. The pair (a,b) of real numbers may be viewed as a point in the plane, given by X- and Y-coordinates. This same point may also be described by giving the pair of real numbers (r,phi), where r is the distance to the origin O, and phi the angle between the X-axis and the line Oz. Now z = r*exp(i*phi) = r*(cos(phi)+i*sin(phi)).
The basic operations are defined on z = a+b*i and w = c+d*i as:
- addition: z+w = (a+c) + (b+d)*i
- multiplication: z*w = (a*c - b*d) + (a*d + b*c)*i
- division: z/w = ((a*c + b*d)/(c*c + d*d)) + ((b*c - a*d)/(c*c + d*d))*i
EXAMPLEYour C-compiler can work with complex numbers if it supports the C99 standard. Link with -lm. The imaginary unit is represented by I.
