    Presentations of Imaginary Axis for different types of coordinates and dimensions.

    Could you explain and depict geometrically imaginary axis for different types of real coordinates? I need it on order to understand their meanings both for physical applications IRL and further studying on pure mathematics. P.S. Are there any connections between imaginary axis on...

    Real and Imaginary Numbers

    Good morning, I am working on a problem where I am finding the 4th Coefficient in a sample of 4 discrete time Fourier Series coefficients. I got the sum but now I have to solve for a_3 which consists of a real and imaginary part. Any assitance on how to solve for the a_3? Thank you. a_k...

    imaginary golden ratio

    The post on the imaginary golden ration looks interesting, but the formulas do not display on my Chrome browser. Is there anything I should do to display the formulas?

    So I got this imaginary number...

    I don't think I did this question correctly but anyways what am I suppose to do with this number? Did I make a critical mistake and caused it to be imaginary? Is there more I can do?

    Equate Real and Imaginary Parts of Expression

    Let h = s + it, then (e^h) - 1 - h = (e^s *cos(t) -1 -s)+ i(e^s*sin(t) -t) =(e^s*cos(t-1) + e^s -s) + i(e^s*sin(t-t) +t(e^s -1)) This means that (e^s cos(t) -1 -s) =(e^s cos(t-1) + e^s -1 -s) , and (e^s sin(t) -t)= (e^s sin(t-t) +t(e^s-1)) But why? How can we see this?

    Hi how can I solve this problem with complex numbers?

    A complex number z with imaginary part 164i has the property that z/(z+n) = 4i, where n is a positive integer. Find n

    Axis of Imaginary Numbers: Constructions?

    If I can make an axis across which imaginary numbers have some gradient of positive and negative values, I can hypothetically create an axis that is somehow altered (not unlike using different base systems other than the standard base-10 system). The idea is to use imaginary numbers to create...

    Angle of the Imaginary Plane

    Hello all, If I imagine the imaginary axis and the real axis, it makes me wonder what angle the imaginary plane is? I always think the the real axis as the number line, so if I look at it end on, it becomes a point and the imaginary axis can be at any angle normal to the line. The only...

    Imaginary unit...Real question

    from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gelfond%27s_constant if anyone uses, maple, their facility for checking that a number 'x' is algebraic is called by: type(x, algnum) and if you do so for x=-i you will note that this Boolean returns false, where as if you check the Euler–Mascheroni...

    Questions about imaginary number i

    As we all know, i = square root of -1 i squared = -1 i is an argument of half pi Here are my questions If i was cubed would it equal 1? Is i squared an argument of pi? If i cubed does equal 1 would it be an argument of tau? My Laptop can't handle latex :(. I want this...

    Is the sine or cosine inverse of improper fractions imaginary?

    Greetings. I am Hariharan, a class 9 student. Of late, I've been working with Rene Descartes' method of geometric square root extraction (See SquareSquareRootConstruction). I tried to deduce an algebraic equation to find the square root of any number from this. Working further, I got some...

    Find imaginary time

    I don't know what the math is to convert this to readable time. 1509949440 = 9 minutes and 0 seconds 16777215 = 0 seconds/minutes 2868903936 = 17 minutes and 12 seconds 2801795072 = 16 minutes and 42 seconds

    How are imaginary numbers not closed under subtraction?

    I was looking at the MTEL practice test, and according to one of their questions, imaginary numbers are *not* closed under subtraction. Did they make a mistake? It's clearly obvious that when you subtract two imaginary numbers, it's still imaginary! I feel extremely bothered. The only...

    Power series - proof for substituting an imaginary number for x

    Hi guys, I saw this forum and I thought you could help. I'm currently trying to prove Euler's formula in depth. I am wondering, is there any proof for the theorem you would use to substitute "iy" for "x" in the Maclaurin series expansion of e^x? I know it is possible, but i have no idea...

    What are imaginary numbers?

    At school I really struggled to understand the concept of imaginary numbers. My teacher told us that an imaginary number is a number which has something to do with the square root of -1. When I tried to calculate the square root of -1 on my calculator, it gave me an error. To this day I do not...

    real vs imaginary

    Hope I have the right forum section for this question. For a complex variable z=x+iy i = -1^1/2 What are the real and imaginary parts of g(z)=e^sin(z) This question confuses me, since i is a negative radical it is imaginary therefore this would make z imaginairy correct? the rest of e^sin(z)...
