Chapter 1

COMPLEX NUMBERS

1.1. Arithmetic and Conjugates

The purpose of this chapter is to give a review of various properties of the complex numbers that we shall need in the discussion of complex analysis. As the reader is expected to be familiar with the material, all proofs have been omitted.

The equationx2+ 1 = 0 has no solutionx\u2208R. To \u201csolve\u201d this equation, we have to introduce extra numbers into our number system. To do this, we de\ufb01ne the number i by i2+ 1 = 0, and then extend the \ufb01eld of all real numbers by adjoining the number i, which is then combined with the real numbers by the operations addition and multiplication in accordance with the Field axioms of the real number system. The numbersa + ib, wherea, b\u2208R, of the extended \ufb01eld are then added and multiplied in accordance with the Field axioms, suitably extended, and the restriction i2+ 1 = 0. Note that the numbera + 0i, wherea\u2208R, behaves like the real numbera.

What we have said in the last paragraph basically amounts to the following. Consider two complex

numbersa + ib andc + id, wherea, b, c, d\u2208R. We have the addition and multiplication rules

(a + ib) + (c + id) = (a +c) + i(b +d)

and

(a + ib)(c + id) = (ac\u2212 bd) + i(ad +bc).

These lead to the subtraction rule

(a + ib)\u2212 (c + id) = (a\u2212 c) + i(b\u2212 d),

and the division rule, that ifc + id\ue001= 0, then

a+ib

c+id=ac+ bd

c2+ d2+ibc\u2212 ad

c2+ d2.

W W L Chen : Introduction to Complex Analysis

Note the special casea = 1 andb = 0.

Suppose thatz =x + iy, wherex, y\u2208R. The real numberx is called the real part ofz, and denoted

byx =Rez. The real numbery is called the imaginary part ofz, and denoted byy =Imz. The set

C={z =x + iy :x, y\u2208 R}is called the set of all complex numbers. The complex numberz= x\u2212iyis

called the conjugate ofz.

It is easy to see that for everyz\u2208C, we have

Rez=z+z

2

and

Imz=z\u2212 z

2i.

Furthermore, ifw\u2208C, then

z+ w= z+ w

and

zw= z w.

1.2. Polar Coordinates

Suppose thatz =x + iy, wherex, y\u2208R. The real number

r=

\ue000

x2+ y2

is called the modulus ofz, and denoted by|z|. On the other hand, ifz\ue001= 0, then any number\u03b8\u2208R

satisfying the equations

(1)

x= rcos \u03b8

and

y= rsin \u03b8

is called an argument ofz, and denoted by argz. Hence we can writez in polar form

z= r(cos \u03b8+ i sin \u03b8).

Note, however, that for a givenz\u2208C, argz is not unique. Clearly we can add any integer multiple of 2\u03c0 to\u03b8 without a\ufb00ecting (1). We sometimes call a real number\u03b8\u2208R the principal argument ofz if\u03b8 satis\ufb01es the equations (1) and\u2212\u03c0 < \u03b8 \u2264\u03c0. The principal argument ofz is usually denoted by Argz.

It is easy to see that for everyz\u2208C, we have|z|2=zz. Also, ifw\u2208C, then

|zw|= |z||w|

and

|z+ w| \u2264|z|+ |w|.

Furthermore, if

z= r(cos \u03b8+ i sin \u03b8)

and

w= s(cos \u03c6+ i sin \u03c6),

wherer, s, \u03b8, \u03c6\u2208R andr, s > 0, then

zw= rs(cos(\u03b8+ \u03c6) + i sin(\u03b8+ \u03c6))

and

z

w=rs(cos(\u03b8\u2212 \u03c6) + i sin(\u03b8\u2212 \u03c6)).

1.3. Rational Powers

De Moivre\u2019s theorem, that

(2)

cosn\u03b8 + i sinn\u03b8 = (cos\u03b8 + i sin\u03b8)n

for everyn\u2208N and\u03b8\u2208R,

Chapter 1 : Complex Numbers

1\u20133

is useful in \ufb01ndingn-th roots of complex numbers.

Suppose thatc =R(cos\u03b1 + i sin\u03b1), whereR, \u03b1\u2208R andR > 0. Then the solutions of the equation

zn=c are given by

z=

n

\u221aR

\ue001

cos\u03b1+2k\u03c0

n

+ i sin\u03b1+2k\u03c0

n

\ue002

,

wherek = 0, 1,...,n\u2212 1.

Finally, we can de\ufb01necbfor anyb\u2208Q and non-zeroc\u2208C as follows. The rational numberb can be written uniquely in the formb =p/q, wherep\u2208Z andq\u2208N have no prime factors in common. Then there are exactlyq distinct numbersz satisfyingzq =c. We now de\ufb01necb =zp, noting that the expression (2) can easily be extended to alln\u2208Z. It is not too di\ufb03cult to show that there areq distinct values for the rational powercb.
