Chapter 2 Mathematical Prerequisites 2.1 Complex Numbers 2.1.1 Solution mathcplx-a Question: Multiply out (2 + 3i) 2 and then fnd its real and imaginary part. Answer: Multiplying out the square gives 2 2 + 12i + (3i) 2 . Since i 2 = 1, you get 5 + 12i. This means that the real part is 5 and the imaginary part 12. 2.1.2 Solution mathcplx-b Question: Show more directly that 1 / i = i. Answer: The probably most straightForward way is to take i to the other side, 1 = i 2 , and then note that i 2 = 1. 2.1.3 Solution mathcplx-c Question: Multiply out (2 + 3i)(2 3i) and then fnd its real and imaginary part. 5

6 CHAPTER 2. MATHEMATICAL PREREQUISITES Answer: You get 2 2 (3i) 2 , which is 4+9 = 13 so the real part is 13 and the imaginary part is zero. 2.1.4 Solution mathcplx-d Question: Find the magnitude or absolute value of 2 + 3i. Answer: The magnitude

Unformatted text preview: | 2 + 3i | of 2 + 3i is the square root of 2 + 3i times its complex conjugate 2 3i: | 2 + 3i | = r (2 + 3i)(2 3i) = r 2 2 (3i) 2 . Since i 2 = 1, | 2 + 3i | = 13. 2.1.5 Solution mathcplx-e Question: Verify that (2 3i) 2 is still the complex conjugate of (2+3i) 2 if both are multiplied out. Answer: (2 3i) 2 = 5 12i and (2 + 3i) 2 = 5 + 12i. 2.1.6 Solution mathcplx-f Question: Verify that e 2i is still the complex conjugate of e 2i after both are rewritten using the Euler formula. Answer: e 2i = cos(2) i sin(2) and e 2i = cos(2) + i sin(2). 2.1.7 Solution mathcplx-g Question: Verify that p e i + e i P / 2 = cos . Answer: Apply the Euler formula for both exponentials and note that sin( ) = sin ....
