This article covers the use of the Python complex Function.
This article covers the use of the python complex function and it’s uses complete with examples.
A complex number is a number that can be expressed in the form a + bi, where a and b are real numbers, and i is a solution of the equation x² = −1. Because no real number satisfies this equation, i is called an imaginary number.
The complex function takes integers or strings as inputs and returns an appropriate complex number. Attempting to pass a inappropriate value will possibly result in a
complex() takes two parameters,
real, The real part of the number. If left empty, will take the default value of
imag, The imaginary part of the number. If left empty will take the default of
You can also choose to pass a single string instead of two numbers. See the examples below for clarification.
>>> complex(3) (3+0j) >>> complex(0,7) 7j >>> complex(3,4) (3+4j) >>> complex(-3,-2) (-3-2j)
>>> complex('3+4j') (3+4j) >>> complex('5-2j') (5-2j)
The conjugate of a complex number can be thought of it’s opposite. The conjugate of a complex number is found by multiplying the imaginary part by the
- sign. Any complex number returned from the
complex() function can have the
conjugate() function applied to it.
>>> a = complex(3+4j) >>> a.conjugate() (3-4j) >>> b = complex(5-1j) >>> b.conjugate() (5+1j)
