ABSTRACT
It is shown that arithmetic operations are simplified if complex numbers are represented in an integrated form with real and imaginary parts sharing the same exponent. In the new representation, numbers with large magnitudes suffer increased rounding errors but errors for some other numbers decrease.
INDEX TERMS
Complex numbers, floating point, imaginary base, negative base, number representation, rounding errors.
