Not-So-Imaginary Numbers

  • Thursday, September 12, 2019
  • 3:40 PM–4:30 PM
  • North Hall 270

Chris Moseley, Calvin University

The number i has the property that i^2 = -1.  We refer to i as an “imaginary number”, but in this talk I will argue that i and its siblings aren't any more imaginary than the real numbers, and that the so-called “complex numbers” aren’t so complex after all.

Refreshments precede the talk at 3:30 p.m. in NH 282.
