FP1: Chapter 1 Complex Numbers Dr J Frost ([email protected]) Last modified: 2nd January 2014 i i captain! Here’s something that someone has almost certainly spoiled for you already… = −1 ? Complex versus imaginary numbers Imaginary number: of form , ? ∈ ℝ Complex number: of form + , ? , ∈ ℝ Real ? part Imaginary ? part 3 + 4 Putting complex numbers in the preferred form We tend to ensure real and imaginary components are grouped together. (a, b and c are real constants) ? + b)i a + 3i – 4 + bi = a – 4 + (3 2a – 3bi + 3 – 6ci = 2a+3 – 3(b ? + 2c)i Convention 1 Just like we’d write 6 instead of 6, the i appears after any real constants, so we might write 5ki or i. An exception is when we involve a function. e.g. i sin and i√3 Why? This avoids ambiguity over whether ? the function is being applied to the i. Convention 2 In the same way that we often initially use x and y as real-valued variables, we often use z first to represent complex values, then w. Why complex numbers? Complex numbers were originally introduced by the Italian mathematician Cardano in the 1500s to allow him to represent the roots of polynomials which weren’t ‘real’. They can also be used to represent outputs of functions for inputs not in the usual valid domain, e.g. Logs of negative numbers, or even the factorial of negative numbers! Some other major applications of Complex Numbers: 1 Fractals A Mandelbrot Set is the most popular ‘fractal’. For each possible complex number c, we see if zn+1 = zn2 + c is not divergent (using z0 = 0), leading to the diagram on the right. Coloured diagrams can be obtained by seeing how quickly divergence occurs for each complex c (if divergent). 2 This is called an Argand Diagram. We’ll use it later. Analytic Number Theory Number Theory is the study of integers. Analytic Number Theory treats integers as reals/complex numbers to use other (‘analytic’) methods to study them. For example, the Riemann Zeta Function allows complex numbers as inputs, and is closely related to the distribution of prime numbers. 3 Physics and Engineering Used in Signal Analysis, Quantum Mechanics, Fluid Dynamics, Relativity, Control Theory...

The same trick works with complex numbers. ! If z = x + yi, then we define z* = x – yi. z* is known as the complex conjugate of z. z z* = x2 + ? y2 z + z* = 2x ? which are both real.? The fact the first is real will help us with dividing complex numbers. We’ll see the significance of the second later.

This is an alternative way of representing coordinate, which instead of using the (x,y) position (known as a Cartesian coordinate), uses the distance from the origin and the angle.

We’ll see in FP2 that we can express a complex number as arg see the infamous = −1. But for now, let’s get halfway there... Im[z] ., where we’ll also Suppose that r = |z| and = arg(z). How could we express z in terms of r and o? arg z Re[z] ! z = x + yi = r cos + r i sin = r(cos + i sin ) This is known as the modulusargument form (or the polar form) of z.

So can we prove this, i.e. that: = and = + Let = + and = + . Then = − + + = + + ?+ So = = and = + = + The following C3 identities may be useful: cos + = cos cos − sin sin sin + = sin cos + cos sin Comparing coefficients If two complex numbers are equal, then clearly both their real and imaginary parts are equal. i.e. if 1 + 1 = 2 + 2 then 1 = 2 and 1 = 2 .

Roots of polynomials Any cubic (with coefficient of x3 of 1) can be expressed as: y = (x – α)(x – )(x – ) where α, and are the roots. However, these 3 roots may not necessarily all be real... α All 3 roots are real. α α 1 real root, 2 ? complex roots. 3 real roots (one ? repeated) Are there any other possibilities? No: since cubics have a range of – to +, it must cross the x axis. And it can’t cross an even number of times, otherwise the cubic would start and end in the same vertical direction. ? = Roots of polynomials Classic Question: x = 2 is one of the roots of the polynomial x3 – x – 6 Find the other two roots. Use polynomial division (as per C2) to divide x3 – x – 6 by (x – 2). This gives x2 + 2x + 3. ? Using the quadratic formula, we obtain the roots: x = -1 i√2 Your Go: x = -1/2 is one of the roots of the polynomial 2x3 – 5x2 + 5x + 4. Find the other two roots. We could divide by (x + ½), but it would be cleaner to divide by (2x + 1). This gives x^2 – 3x + 4. Using the quadratic formula, we obtain the roots: ? x = - ½ (3 i√7) Relationship between complex roots For the first cubic, we found the two complex roots were: x = -1 i√2 Q What is the relationship between these two roots? They’re complex conjugates. ? Q Can we prove this will always be the case for cubics with real coefficients? Suppose a and b are the two complex roots. Then (x – α)(x – β) in the expansion must give real coefficients. (x – α)(x – β) = x2 – (a + β)x + αβ Therefore α + β and αβ must both be real. We saw earlier that this is satisfied when α and β are complex conjugates. ? (Although technically our proof isn’t complete, because we’ve shown that the roots being complex conjugates is a sufficient condition for the coefficients of the cubic being real, not a necessary one. However, we know the imaginary components of α and β must be the same but negative of each other, so that in α + β they cancel out, and we can proceed from there to show the real components of α and β must be the same). In summary, complex roots of polynomials always come in complex conjugate pairs. Finding other roots Another classic type of exam question: -1 + 2i is one of the roots of the cubic x3 – x2 – x – 15. Find the other two roots. Other complex root is the complex conjugate: -1 – 2i. Now expand (x – (-1 + 2i))(x – (-1 – 2i)) = x2 – (-1 – 2i)x – (-1 + 2i)x + (-1 + 2i)(-1 – 2i) = x2 + 2x + 5 ? We can now either use polynomial division or “Factor Theorem with trial and error” to establish the real root as 3. Your turn: 2 – i is one of the roots of the cubic x3 – 11x + 20. Find the other two roots. 2 + i is other complex root. (x – (2 + i))(x – (2 – i)) = x2 – 4x ? + 5. Dividing we get (x + 4), so real root is -4. Quartics Any quartic (with coefficient of x4 of 1) can be expressed as: y = (x – α)(x – )(x – )(x – δ) where α, , and δ are the roots. α δ Possibility 1: 4 real roots (some ? potentially repeated) α Possibility 2: 2 real roots, pair of ? roots. complex conjugate Possibility 3: No real roots. Two pairs of complex ? conjugate roots. Any other possibilities? No. On y-axis, both ends of line must either be both positive infinity or both negative. xaxis must therefore be crossed an even number of times, so an even number of real roots. ?
