Complex numbers are NOT complex!

The first time someone told me about Complex numbers, i found it extremely hard to interpret it’s physical meaning. In this post, I wish to present to you an analogy to get a sense of what Complex Numbers actually mean. 

Addition in 2- Dimensions.

We all know how to add in 1-Dimension. 3+2 =5, 15+2= 17. But let’s review anyway. Let say you want to add 3+1, you go to the number line and start at 0. First you move 3 units and then you move another one. The number you are at renders you the answer.

What does the “i” signify?

Complex numbers are written in the form z= a+ib. The “i” in a complex number is an Instruction! An instruction to turn 90 degrees in the counterclockwise direction. 

What is a+ib trying to tell you?

a+ib is trying to tell you to move ‘a’ units in the x- direction. The “i” is telling you to turn counterclockwise 90 degrees and move ‘b’ units in that direction ( This direction is called as the Imaginary axis). You reach the point X.

The point X of course, as Pythagoras found out is at a distance of  

from the origin and is inclined at an angle ( wrt to the x- axis ).

Cementing your understanding.

1+0i - Move 1 unit in the x-direction.

0+1i- Turn 90-degrees anti-clockwise and move 1 unit in that direction.

-1+0i - Move 1 unit in the negative x- direction.

0-1i- Turn 90 degrees anti-clockwise and move 1 unit in the opposite direction.

This is what I love to call as “ Addition in Two Dimensions “ because it is the same ordinary addition of two numbers that we all are familiar with. But instead of confining yourself with only one dimension, we perform the operation in two dimensions.

Final Thoughts.

There are an increasing number of people who refuse to study complex numbers without realizing how simple it is. Maybe they shouldn’t have called it COMPLEX numbers! 

Nevertheless, If you have got any queries, you are encouraged to ask! for there is no such thing as a bad or stupid question and having a clarity of mind is quintessential to understanding.

(EDIT: For those of you who know about vectors, the inspiration for this analogy came from the geometrical interpretation of Vectors.)
