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.
