MA114: Matrices and Complex Numbers
Hi, I'm Jessica Claridge. This week in MA114 we will begin by ensuring everyone is set up to use MATLAB and will start exploring Complex Numbers.
What are matrices and complex numbers?
A matrix is an array of numbers.
A complex number is a combination of a real number and an imaginary number. For example, consider the form a + bx, where a and b are real numbers, and x satisfies the equation x2 = −1. Because no real number satisfies this equation, we call x an "imaginary number".
"There can be very little of present-day science and technology that is not dependent on complex numbers in one way or another."
Hi, I'm Alexei Vernitski, I also teach on this module.
