Here roots of this equation are of the form x + iy, where x and y are real numbers. Roots of
this form are called complex roots.
Any number of the form x + iy (where x and y are real numbers) is called a complex number.
A complex number x + iy is also defined as an ordered pair of real numbers x and y and may
bewrittenas(x, y).
If z = x + iy, then x is called the real part of complex number and y is called the imaginary part
of the complex number z. x is denoted as Re(z) and y is denoted as Im(z).

ALGEBRAIC OPERATIONS WITH COMPLEX NUMBERS


(i)

Addition: (x1 + iy1) + (x2 + iy2) = (x1 + x2) + i (y1 + y2)

(ii) Subtraction: (x1 + iy1) (x2 + iy2) = (x1 x2) + i(y1y2)


(iii) Multiplication: (x1 + iy1) (x2 + iy2) = (x1x2 y1y2) + i (x1y2 + x2y1)

(vi) The complex number do not posses the property of order
i.e., (x1 + iy1) < or > (x2 + iy2) is not defined.

ARGAND PLANE AND GEOMETRICAL REPRESENTATION OF COMPLEX


NUMBERS
(a) Let O be the origin and OX and OY be the x-axis and y-axis respectively. Corresponding to each complex number x + iy there will be one and only one point P(x, y) in the xy
plane.
Thus each complex number x + iy can be represented by a point P(x, y) of the xy-plane and
conversely corresponding to each point P(x, y) of the xyplanetherewillbeauniquecomplexnumber
x + iy. The xy-plane is called the Argand Plane, Complex Plane or Gaussian Plane, xaxis is called the real axis and y-axis is called the imaginary axis.

Note:

(i)

Any other vector AB which has the same magnitude, direction and sense as

that of OP but has a different initial point, also represents the complex number z.
(ii) Complex numbers can be considered as vectors in case of sum, difference and modulus
of complex numbers.

CONJUGATE OF A COMPLEX NUMBER


The complex numbers z = x + iy and z x iy, where x and y are real numbers, i 1
and y 0 are said to be complex conjugate of each other. (Here the complex conjugate is
obtained by just changing the sign of i).
Note that, sum = (x + iy) + (x iy)
= 2x, which is real and product = (x + iy) (x iy)
= x2 + y2 which is real.
Properties of Conjugate: (i) z is the mirror image of z along real axis.

GEOMETRICAL REPRESENTATION OF SUM AND DIFFERENCE OF TWO COMPLEX


NUMBERS
Let z1 = x1 + iy1 and z2 = x2 + iy2 be two complex numbers.
Let z1 and z2 be represented by the points P(x1 , y1) and Q(x2, y2) in the Argand plane.
Let O be the origin. Join OP and OQ. Produce QO backwards to Q such that OQ = OQ.
Then, the co-ordinates of Q will be (x2 , y2) and therefore, Q will represent the complex
number z2 = x2 + i (y2).
Complete the parallelogram POQ R and let its diagonals intersect at the point H.
x x 2 y1 y 2
Since H is the middle point of PQ , its co-ordinates are 1
,

Now, if (x, y) be the co-ordinates of R, then since H is the middle point of OR, the coordinates of H are .

x = x1 x2 and y = y1 y2.
Thus, the co-ordinates of R are (x1 x2, y1 y2).
Y
Q(z2)

S
P(z1)

X
H

R(z1 z2)

Q(z2)
Y

Hence, the point R represents the complex number


(x1 x2) + i (y1 y2) = [(x1 + iy1) (x2 + iy2)] = z1 z2
Clearly, |z1| = OP, |z2| = | z2 | = OQ and |z1 z2| = OR = PQ
So if P(z1) and Q(z2) be two points then |z1 z2| is the distance between P and Q.
Similarly, the point S represents the complex number z1 + z2.
Since in a triangle sum of two sides is greater than the 3rd side and difference of two sides is
less than the 3rd side, we have
|z1| + |z2| |z1 + z2|, equality holds when arg z1 = arg z2
||z1| |z2|| |z1 z2|, equality holds when arg z1 = arg z2 .

GEOMETRICAL REPRESENTATION OF PRODUCT AND QUOTIENT OF TWO


COMPLEX NUMBERS
Let z1 and z2 be two complex numbers.
Let z1 = r1 (cos 1 i sin 1 ) and z2 = r2 (cos 2 i sin 2 ) .
Let z1 and z2 be represented by the points P and Q respectively. Let O be the origin. We join
OP and OQ.
Then OP = r1 ; POX 1; OQ r2 and QOX 2
Now z1z2 = r1 (cos 1 i sin 1 ).r2 (cos 2 i sin 2 )
= r1r2 [cos( 1 2 ) i sin (1 2 )].
10

COMPLEX NUMBERS
= r(cos i sin ), where r = r1 r2 and 1 2
Thus z1z2 is a complex number whose modulus is r1r2 and argument is 1 2 .
Take a point A on the real axis such that OA = 1. Join PA.
Now, construct a triangle OQR similar to the triangle OAP
From similar OAP and OQR , we have
OR OP
OR r1

or

OQ OA
r2 1 or, OR = r1 r2.

and, XOR XOP POR 1 2


Y
R(z1.z2)

Q(z2)
P(z1)

Thus, the point R represents z1z2. Similalry we can represent z as a complex number having
2

modulus r1/r2 and argument 1 2 .

(z1 z 2 ) (z 4 z 3 )

(z1 z 3 ) (z 4 z 2 )
(z1 z 3 ) (z 4 z 2 ) = a positive real number
So if z1, z2 z3 and z4 are such that
A(z1)

C(z3)

(z1 z 2 ) (z 4 z3 )
(z1 z3 ) (z 4 z 2 ) is a positive real, then these four points are concyclic and vice-versa.

(i)

Natural Numbers

The set of numbers {1, 2, 3, 4, ..... } are called natural numbers, and is denoted by N.
i.e., N = {1, 2, 3, 4, ..... }
(ii) Integers
The set of numbers {....., 3, 2, 1, 0, 1, 2, 3, .....} are called integers and the set is denoted
by I or Z.
where we represent;
(a) Positive integers by I+ = {1, 2, 3, 4, .....} = Natural numbers.
(b) Negative integers by I = {....., 4, 3, 2, 1}
(c) Non-negative integers = {0, 1, 2, 3, 4, ....} = Whole numbers
(d) Non-positive integers = {....., 3, 2, 1, 0}
(iii) Rational Numbers
a
, where a and b are integers, b 0 are called rational numbers
b
and their set is denoted by Q.

All the numbers of the form

i.e., Q

Note:

a

(iv) Irrational Numbers


Those values which neither terminate nor could be expressed as recurring decimals are irrational numbers. i.e., it can not be expressed as

INTERVALS
The set of numbers between any two real numbers is called interval. The following are the
types of interval.
(a) Closed Interval:
[a, b] = {x : a x b}
(b) Open Interval:
(a, b) or ]a, b[ = {x : a < x < b}
(c) Semi open or semi closed interval:
[a, b[ or [a, b) = {x: a x < b}
]a, b] or (a, b] = {x: a < x b}

THE ABSOLUTE VALUE OF A REAL NUMBER


The absolute value (or modulus) of a real number x (written |x|) is a non negative real number
that satisfies the conditions.
| x | = x if x 0
| x | = x if x < 0
Example: | 2 | = 2, | 5 | = 5, | 0 | = 0
From the definition it follows that the relationship x |x| holds for any x.
The properties of absolute values are
(1) the inequality | x | means that x ; if > 0
(2) the inequality | x | means that x or x .
(3) | x y| |x| + |y|;
(4) | x y| | | x | | y ||;

INEQUALITIES
The following are some very useful points to remember:

a b either a < b or a = b

a < b and b < c a < c

a < b a > b i.e., inequality sign reverses if both sides are multiplied
by a negative number

a < b and c < d a + c < b + d and a d < b c. c R

a < b ma < mb if m > 0 and ma > mb if m < 0

0 < a < b ar < br if r > 0 and ar > br if r < 0

DEFINITION OF FUNCTION
Let A and B be two non-empty sets. Then a function f from set A to set B is a rule which
associates elements of set A to elements of set B such that
(i)

All elements of set A are associated to element in set B.

(ii) An element of set A are associated to a unique element in set B.


Terms such as map (or mapping), correspondence are used as synonyms for function. If
f
f is a function from a set A to set B, then we write f : A B or A
B. which is read as

f is a function from A to B or f maps A to B.


Example 1:
Let A = {2, 4, 6, 8} and B = {s, t, u, v, w} be two sets and let f1, f2, f3 and f4 be rules
associating elements of A to elements of B as shown in the following figures.

Now see that f1 is not function from set A to set B, since there is an element 6 A which is not
associated to any element of B, but f2 and f3 are the function from A to B, because under f2 and
f3 each elements in A is associated to a unique element in B. But f4 is not function from A to B
because an elements 8 A is associated to two elements u and w in B.
Domain : Set A is called domain of f i.e. Set of those elements from which functions is to be
defined.
Co-Domain : Here set B is called co-domain of function.
Range : Set of images of each element in A, is called range of f.
Note: Range Co-domain

ALGEBRA OF FUNCTIONS

EVEN AND ODD FUNCTION


Let f : D R be a real function such that x D as x D. Then f is called an even
function
if
f(x) = f(x) for every x D and an odd function if f(- x) = f(x) x D. Graph of an
even function is symmetrical about y-axis i.e., in I and II (or III and IV) quadrants
always, whereas graph of an odd function is always symmetrical in diagonally opposite quadrants.

PERIODIC FUNCTION
52

FUNCTION
Definition:
A function f(x) is said to be periodic function if, there exists a positive real number T, such that,
f(x + T) = f(x), x Domain.
Then, f(x) is periodic with period T, where T is least positive value.
A function is said to be periodic function if its each value is repeated after a definite interval.
Here the least positive value of T is called the fundamental period of the function.
Clearly f(x) = f(x + T) = f(x + 2T) = f(x + 3T) = . . .
For example, sinx, cosx and tanx are periodic functions with fundamental period 2 , 2 and
respectively..

Properties of Periodic Function:


(i)

If f(x) is periodic with period T , then


(a) c. f(x) is periodic with period T.
(b) f(x + c) is periodic with period T.
(c) f(x) c is periodic with period T..
where c is any constant not equal to zero.

(ii) If f(x) is periodic with period T, then,


T

k f(cx + d) has period | c | , i.e., period is affected only by coefficient of x


where; k, c, d constant, c, k 0
(iii) If f(x), g(x) are periodic functions with periods T1, T2 respectively then; we have
h(x) = af(x) bg (x) has period as,
(1)
LCM of {T1, T2}; if (x) and g(x) can not be interchanged by adding a least
positive number less than the LCM of {T1, T2}.
(2)
k; if f(x) and g(x) can be interchanged by adding a least positive number
k (k < LCM of {T1, T2}).

CLASSIFICATION OF FUNCTION
The following are the different kinds of function
1.

One-One Function (Injection):


If each element in the domain of a function has a distinct image in the co-domain the function
is said to be one-one function and is also known as Injective mapping.
e.g. f : R R+ given by y = ex
g : R R, g(x) = 3x 7
are one - one functions.

53

IIT MATHEMATICS
or, f : A B is one - one
a b f(a) f(b) for all a, b A
f(a) = f(b) a = b for all a, b A

2.

Onto Function (Surjection):


Let , f : X Y be a function. If each element in the co-domain Y has at least one pre-image
in the domain X i.e. Range f = Co domain, then f is called onto.
Onto function are also called surjective and if function be both one-one and onto then function
is called bijective.
or, f : A B is a surjection iff for each b B a A such that f(a) = b .
e.g. If f : R+ R is defined by y = log2x, then f(x) is Onto function.

3.

Into Function:
If there exist one or more than one element in the Co-domain Y which is not an image of any
element in the domain X. Then f is into.
In other words f : A B is an into function if it is not an onto function.
e.g. Let f : R R is defined by y = x2 + 1, then f(x) is an into function. But when f : R R+
is defined by y = x2 + 1, then f(x) is not onto function.

4.

Many-One Function:
If there are two or more than two elements of domain having the same image then f(x) is called
Many - One mapping.
e.g. f : R R+
g : R R+

f(x) = x2 + 4
g(x) = x8 + x4 +x2 + 4

Both functions are many one


Note:
(i)
= f(y).

f : A B is a many - one function if there exist x, y A such that x y but f(x)

e.g y = sin x, y = cos x, y = tan x, y = x2, y = x4, . . . . . are many one functions.
(ii) Every even function is Many - One
(iii) Every periodic function is Many - One

INVERSE OF A FUNCTION
Let f : X Y be a function defined by y = f(x) such that f is both oneone and onto, then
there exists a unique function g : Y X such that for each y Y, g(y) = x y = f(x). The
function g so defined is called the inverse of f and in general denoted by f 1.

54

FUNCTION
Further, if g is the inverse of f, then f is the inverse of g and the two functions f and g are said
to be the inverse of each other. For the inverse of a function to exist, the function must be one
one and onto.
Some standard functions are given below along with their inverse:

GRAPHICAL TRANSFORMATIONS
Few graphical transformations, which are pivotal in understading the pictorial representation
of a function are given below. Students are advised to go through them and understand.
F

Drawing the graph of y = |f(x)| from the known graph of y = f(x)


|f(x)| = f(x) if f(x) 0 and |f(x)| = f(x) if f(x) < 0. It means that the graph of f(x) and |f(x)|
would coincide if f(x) 0 and the portions where f(x) < 0 would get inverted in the upward
direction.

The above figure would make the procedure clear.


F

Drawing the graph of y = f(|x|) from the known graph of y = f(x)


It is clear that, f(|x|) = f(x), x 0 and f(|x|) = f(x), x < 0. Thus f(|x|) would be an even
function. Graphs of f(|x|) and f(x) would be identical in the first and the fourth quadrants (as x
0) and as such the graph of f(|x|) would be symmetrical about the yaxis (as (|x|) is even).

The figure would make the procedure clear.

55

Drawing the graph of |y| = f(x) from the known graph of y = f(x)

FUNCTION

y = f(x). Hence graph of |y| = f(x) would exist only in the regions where f(x) 0 and will be

y

|y| = f(x)
x

O
y = f(x)

Full lines show the graph of |y| = f(x) and dotted lines depict the corresponding graph of y =

F

Drawing the graph of y = f(x + a), a R from the known graph of y = f(x)
y = f(x)

y = f(x + a), a > 0

y = f(x + a), a < 0


x0 - |a|

x0

x0 + |a|

Let us take any point x0 domain of f(x), and set x + a = x0 or x = x0 a. a > 0

x < x0, and a < 0 x > x0. That mean x0 and x0 a would give us same abscissa for f(x) and
f(x + a) respectively.

As such for a > 0, graph of f(x + a) can be obtained simply by translating the graph of f(x) in the
negative xdirection through a distance a units. If a < 0, graph of f(x + a) can be obtained by
translating the graph of f(x) in the positive xdirection through a distance a units.
F

Drawing the graph of y = a f(x) from the known graph of y = f(x)


y = a f(x), a > 1

y = f(x)
y = af(x), 0 < a < 1
x

It is clear that the corresponding points (points with same x coordinates) would have their
ordinates in the ratio of 1 : a.
F

Drawing the graph of y = f(ax) from the known graph of y = f(x)

IIT MATHEMATICS
y
y = f(x)
y = f(ax), 1 < a

y = f(ax), 0 < a <1


x

Let us take any point x0 domain of f(x). Let ax = x0 or x =

x0
a

Clearly if 0 < a < 1 then x > x0 and f(x) will stretch by 1/a units against yaxis, and if a > 1, x
< x0, then f(x) will compress by a units against yaxis.
F

Drawing the graph of y = f1 (x) from the known graph of y = f(x)


For drawing the graph of y = f1(x) we have to first of all find the interval in which the function
is bijective (invertible). Then take the reflection of y = f(x) (within the invertible region) about
the
line
1
y = x. The reflected part would give us the graph of y = f (x).
e.g. let us draw the graph of y = sin1 x. We know that y = f(x) = sin x is invertible

if f : , 1,1 the inverse mapping would be f1 : [1, 1] ,
