3.3 Complex Numbers
• Complex values
• We can also show complex numbers graphically. These representations lead to alternative representations. If it is not obvious above, please consider the notation uses a cartesian notation, but a polar notation can also be very useful when doing large calculations.
• We can also do calculations using polar notation (this is well suited to multiplication and division, whereas cartesian notation is easier for addition and subtraction),
• Note that DeMoivre’s theorem can be used to find exponents (including roots) of complex numbers
• Euler’s formula:
• From the above, the following useful identities arise:
