Phasor notation Euler Identity Instead of writing the sinusoidal terms of the time varying fields, we may simply express the time variation of the fields as complex exponentials To get the time domain expression of the field, we simply get the real part of the complex exponential e j cos  j sin A x , y , z ,t = A x , y , z cos  t ≡ A x , y , z e j  t  A x , y , z ,t =ℜ[ A x , y , z e j  t  ]= A x , y , z cos  t 
