Complex Numbers: Introduction and Operations


    In mathematics, a complex number is a number of the form    math general form of a complex number.

Where a and b are real numbers, and i is the imaginary unit, with the property i 2 = −1. The real number a is called the real part of the complex number, and the real number b is the imaginary part. Real numbers may be considered to be complex numbers with imaginary part set to zero; that is, the real number a is equivalent to the complex number a+0i.

If z = a + bi, the real part (a) is denoted Re(z), and the imaginary part (b) is denoted Im(z).

Complex numbers can be added, subtracted, multiplied, and divided like real numbers. They cannot be ordered, but have other elegant properties.



        Two complex numbers are equal if and only if their real parts are equal and their imaginary parts are equal.   That is, a + bi = c + di if and only if a = c and b = d.


Notation and Operations:

The set of all complex numbers is usually denoted by the mathematical set of all complex numbers. Complex numbers are added, subtracted, and multiplied by formally applying the associative, commutative and distributive laws of algebra, together with the equation i2 = −1:
