Outline Imaginary Numbers Complex Numbers The Arithmetic of the Complex Numbers Introduction To solve the equation x 2 + 1 = 0 one must find a value for x satisfying x 2 = - 1. There is no x in the set R that will satisfy this equation. Mathematicians such as Ren´ e Descartes (1596-1650), Leonard Euler (1707-1783), and Carl F. Gauss (1777-1855) introduced a new system of numbers that contain numbers that are solutions to this equation and many others. This system is called the complex number system

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
