Diagram 445 WOW! SETI SIGNAL Complex Cartesian Plane Axis

see formula notes

you see an axis

Y, -y, x, RE z = x -iy

geometric representation

Z conjugate Z

in the complex plane

the distance along the light blue line from the origin to its point z is the modules or absolute value of z

(synke – z = 0?)

the angle y is the augment of z

cartesian plane displacement along x axis, imaginary part displacement y axis vectors, 2 complex numbers = polar coordinates 2D each point on a plane is determined by a distance from a reference point and angle from a reference direction.
