Topic: Imaginary Numbers
-- Mirza Charles Iliya Krempeaux
In Mathematics, Imaginary Numbers are Complex Numbers whose sqaure is negative.
Square Root of Negative One
The Sqaure Root of -1 is usually denoted as:
i. As in:
i = √-1
However, with some groups, i and I represent Electrical Current. In these groups,
j is used to denote the square root of -1. As in:
j = √-1
This is often called operator j.
This is not to be confused with the use of
j with Quaternions.
Example Imaginary Numbers
Some examples of complex numbers include:
2i + 3
i - π
π - i
π - i√5
