Complex Numbers (Metric)

Class Details

Tom Baker

Learn, or revise, what complex numbers are, how to do calculations with them, how to use them to solve trig problems, how to define functions on them and how to represent shapes in the plane.

Arithmetic

Addition, subtraction and multiplication; the complex conjugate and its use in division; the Argand diagram. This is a Further Maths topic; Imperial courses that require Further Maths may assume you know it.

What is the square root of \(-1\)?

Lesson Not yet graded

Why there's only one way to express a given complex number as a real number plus an imaginary one.

Lesson Not yet graded

Simple arithmetic with complex numbers.

Lesson Not yet graded

The complex conjugate, \(\bar{z}=x+i\,y\), and how we use it to do division.

Lesson Not yet graded

Complex numbers as points in a plane.

Lesson

Modulus and Argument

Complex numbers as vectors with magnitude and direction, and how to do calculations with them. This is a Further Maths topic; Imperial courses that require Further Maths may assume you know it.

De Moivre's Theorem

Raising complex numbers to powers. Using complex numbers to solve trig problems. \(n\)th roots of complex numbers. This is a Further Maths topic; Imperial courses that require Further Maths may assume you know it.

Complex Functions

Functions of complex \(z\). This is a Further Maths topic; Imperial courses that require Further Maths may assume you know it.

Loci in the Argand Diagram

Shapes in the plane given by conditions on \(z\). This is a Further Maths topic; Imperial courses that require Further Maths may assume you know it.
