Complex Numbers Definition A complex number z is a number of the form x jy where j 1 x is the real part and y the imaginary part, written as x = Re z, = Im z. y j is called the imaginary unit If x = 0, then z = jy is a pure imaginary number. The complex conjugate of a complex number, z = x + jy, denoted by z* , is given by z* = x jy. Two complex numbers are equal if and only if their real parts are e qual and their imaginary parts are equal. 1 August 2006 Slide 2 Complex Plane

A complex number can be plotted on a plane with two perpendicular coordinate axes The horizontal x-axis, called the real axis The vertical y-axis, called the imaginary axis y P z = x + iy O The complex plane 1 August 2006 Represent z = x + jy geometrica lly as the point P(x,y) in the x-y plane, or fro as the vector OP to P(x,y). m the origin x

x-y plane is also known as the complex plane. Slide 3 Polar Coordinates With x r cos , y r sin z takes the polar form: z r (cos j sin ) r is called the absolute value or modulus or magnitude of z and is denoted by |z|. z r x 2 y 2 zz* Note that : * zz ( x jy )( x jy ) 2 x y 1 August 2006

Complex plane, polar form of a complex number Geometrically, |z| is the distance of the point z from the origin while is the directed angle from the positive xaxis to OP in the above figure. From the figure, 1 August 2006 tan 1 y x Slide 5 is called the argument of z and is denoted by arg z. Thus, y arg z tan x 1

z 0 For z = 0, is undefined. A complex number z 0 has infinitely many possible argum ents, each one differing from the rest by some multiple of 2 . In fact, arg z is actually tan 1 y 2n , n 0,1,2,... x The value of that lies in the interval (-, ] is called the pr inciple argument of z ( 0) and is denoted by Arg z. 1 August 2006 Slide 6 Euler Formula an alternate polar form The polar form of a complex number can be rewritten as :

z r (cos j sin ) x jy re j This leads to the complex exponential function : e z e x jy e x e jy x e cos y j sin y 1 j cos e e j 2 1 j sin e e j 2j Further leads to : 1 August 2006

Slide 7 In mathematics terms, is referred to as the argument of z and it can be positive or negative. In engineering terms, is generally referred to as phase of z and it can be positive or negative. It is denoted as z The magnitude of z is the same both in Mathematics and engineering, although in engineering, there are also different interpretations depending on what physical system one is referring to. Magnitudes are always > 0. The application of complex numbers in engineering will be dealt with later. 1 August 2006 Slide 8 Im z1 x r1 z1 r1e j1

meaning. 1 August 2006 Slide 14 Suppose we have 2 complex numbers, z1 and z2 given by : z1 x1 jy1 r1e j1 z 2 x 2 jy 2 r2 e j 2 z1 z 2 x1 jy1 x 2 jy 2 x1 x 2 j y1 y 2 z1 z 2 r1e j1
