9781285057095 AppE.qxp 2/18/13 8:25 AM Page E1 Appendix E E Complex Numbers E1 Complex Numbers Use the imaginary unit i to write complex numbers, and add, subtract, and multiply complex numbers. Find complex solutions of quadratic equations. Write the trigonometric forms of complex numbers. Find powers and nth roots of complex numbers. Operations with Complex Numbers Some equations have no real solutions. For instance, the quadratic equation x2 1 0 Equation with no real solution has no real solution because there is no real number x that can be squared to produce 1. To overcome this deficiency, mathematicians created an expanded system of numbers using the imaginary unit i, defined as i 冪 1 Imaginary unit where i 1. By adding real numbers to real multiples of this imaginary unit, you obtain the set of complex numbers. Each complex number can be written in the standard form a bi. The real number a is called the real part of the complex number a bi, and the number bi (where b is a real number) is called the imaginary part of the complex number. 2 Definition of a Complex Number For real numbers a and b, the number a bi is a complex number. If b 0, then a bi is called an imaginary number. A number of the form bi, where b 0, is called a pure imaginary number. To add (or subtract) two complex numbers, you add (or subtract) the real and imaginary parts of the numbers separately. Addition and Subtraction of Complex Numbers If a bi and c di are two complex numbers written in standard form, then their sum and difference are defined as follows. Sum: 共a bi兲 共c di兲 共a c兲 共b d兲i Difference: 共a bi兲 共c di兲 共a c兲 共b d兲i

Many of the properties of real numbers are valid for complex numbers as well. Here are some examples. Associative Properties of Addition and Multiplication Commutative Properties of Addition and Multiplication Distributive Property of Multiplication over Addition Notice how these properties are used when two complex numbers are multiplied. REMARK Rather than trying to memorize the multiplication rule at the right, you can simply remember how the Distributive Property is used to multiply two complex numbers. The procedure is similar to multiplying two polynomials and combining like terms. 共a bi兲共c di兲 a共c di兲 bi共c di兲 ac 共ad 兲i 共bc兲i 共bd 兲i 2 ac 共ad 兲i 共bc兲i 共bd 兲共 1兲 ac bd 共ad 兲i 共bc兲i 共ac bd 兲 共ad bc兲i Distributive Property Distributive Property i 2 1 Commutative Property Associative Property The procedure above is similar to multiplying two polynomials and combining like terms, as in the FOIL method.

In Figure E.2, consider the nonzero complex number a bi.

The number r is the modulus of z, and is called an argument of z. The trigonometric form of a complex number is also called the polar form. Because there are infinitely many choices for , the trigonometric form of a complex number is not unique. Normally, is restricted to the interval 0 2 , although on occasion it is convenient to use 0.

9781285057095 AppE.qxp 2/18/13 8:25 AM Page E9 Appendix E Complex Numbers E9 To find a formula for an n th root of a complex number, let u be an n th root of z, where u s共cos i sin 兲 and z r共cos i sin 兲. By DeMoivre’s Theorem and the fact that un z, you have sn共cos n i sin n 兲 r共cos i sin 兲. Taking the absolute value of each side of this equation, it follows that s n r. Substituting r for s n in the previous equation and dividing by r, you get cos n i sin n cos i sin . So, it follows that cos n cos and sin n sin . Because both sine and cosine have a period of 2 , these last two equations have solutions if and only if the angles differ by a multiple of 2 . Consequently, there must exist an integer k such that n 2 k 2 k . n By substituting this value for in the next theorem. into the trigonometric form of u, you get the result stated THEOREM E.2 n th Roots of a Complex Number For a positive integer n, the complex number z r 共cos i sin 兲 has exactly n distinct n th roots given by 冢 n r cos 冪 2 k 2 k i sin n n 冣 where k 0, 1, 2, . . . , n 1. For k n 1, the roots begin to repeat. For instance, when k n, the angle 2 n 2 n n is coterminal with 兾n, which is also obtained when k 0. The formula for the n th roots of a complex number z has a nice geometric interpretation, as shown in Figure E.4. Note that because the n nth roots of z all have the same magnitude冪 r, n they all lie on a circle of radius冪r with center at the origin. Furthermore, because successive n r nth roots have arguments that differ by 2 兾n, the n roots are equally spaced along the circle. Figure E.4 Imaginary axis 2π n 2π n Real axis
