Making the Complex Simple
May/June 2007 (vol. 9 no. 3)
pp. 84-89
Julian V. Noble, University of Virginia
This installment of Computing Prescriptions illustrates how complex arithmetic can simplify algorithms in two-dimensional Cartesian vector space as well as how to make difficult numerical integrals tractable. In other words, computer languages for scientific applications should support complex arithmetic.
Index Terms:
arithmetic, algorithms, vectors
