Complex Number Operations (Part II)

For all the calculations, let z = a + bi

Assume your calculator is in Radians Mode. The algorithms are suggested.

Exponential of a Complex Number

e^z = e^a (cos b + i sin b)

This calculation is fairly easy because it is relatively straight forward.

A sample RPN (Reverse Polish Notation) routine would look like:

With b on the y stack and a on the x stack:

STO 0 (or whatever register or variable you want as temporary storage)
x< >y (swap)
x< >y (swap)

Result: real(e^z) is on the x stack, while imag(e^z) is on the y stack

Natural Logarithm of a Complex Number

ln z = ln r + i θ

where r = √(x^2 + y^2) and θ = arctan(y/x)

Casio fx-115ES:
ln(abs(a + bi)) + i arg(a + bi)

Sharp EL-W516:
ln(abs(a + bi)) + i tan^-1(b÷a)

TI-36X Pro:
ln(abs(a + bi)) + i angle(a + bi)

With b on the y stack and a on the x stack, a sample RPN routine mat look like this:
→P (Rectangular to Polar conversion)

Argument vs Arctangent (tan^-1)

Bear in mind that the argument (often labeled arg or angle for TI calulators) and the arctangent functions returns different angles. However the angles are accurate, recall the identity tan(x ± π) = tan(x).

Ranges of Calculator Functions:

angle/arg returns the angle between -π/2 and π/2 (-90° and 90°)

tan^-1 returns the angle between 0 and π (0° and 180°)

Sine of a Complex Number

There are two general formulas to calculate the sine of a complex number

(1) sin z = sin a cosh b + i cos a sinh b

(2) sin z = (e^iz - e^-iz)/(2i)

Formula (2) is good if your calculator can handle e^z. For the non-graphing calculators, I recommend using formula (1).

A sample RPN routine looks like this:

With b on the y stack and a on the x stack:

STO 0 (or A)
x< >y
STO 1 (or B)
RCL 1 (or B)
RCL 0 (or A)

Cosine of a Complex Number

Calculating the cosine of a complex number is similar:

(1) cos z = cos a cosh b - i sin a sinh b

(2) cos z = (e^iz + e^-iz)/2

A sample RPN routine looks like this:

With b on the y stack and a on the x stack:

STO 0 (or A)
CHS (+/-)
x< >y
STO 1 (or B)
RCL 1 (or B)
RCL 0 (or A)

The formulas are presented for completion.

ArcSine and ArcCosine

These formulas are presented for completion.

sin^-1 z = -i ln( i z ± √(1 - z^2))

cos^-1 z = -i ln(z ± i√(1 - z^2))

The principle angle is given by using +.


Complex Power of a Complex Number

Let z and w be complex numbers, then:

z^w = e^(w ln z)

Complex Number Operations


Complex numbers have been a recurring feature on scientific calculators, and for most calculators, the calculations we can readily do on them have been limited - particularly on non-graphing scientific calculators.

If your non graphing calculator has complex number calculations, chances are this is the limit of what the calculator can do:

* Arithmetic (+, -, x, ÷)
* Square, but not square root
* Cube, but not cube root
* Rectangular/Polar conversions
* A separate function for magnitude, angle, real, and imaginary part extraction

The point of this blog is to give you some tricks to extend the calculation of complex numbers:

* Powers and principal root
* Exponential and Natural Logarithm (next week)
* Sine and Cosine (next week)

For any calculators using reverse polish notation (RPN), such the HP 35S, HP 50g, HP 15c, or even apps such as the GO-25 SCI RPN; I will present a "generalized" routine that you can use to perform the calculations. Please adjust as necessary what how your calculator works best.


HP 41C Math Pac, Hewlett Packard, 1979

Square of a Complex Number

By simple algebra, we can calculate the square of a complex number as:

(a + bi)^2 = (a^2 - b^2) + 2abi

Remember that i = √-1, so i^2 = -1.

Thankfully, scientific calculators allow this calculation simply by typing in (a + bi)^2.

For calculators using RPN, try this routine: starting with b stored in Register 2 (or letter if you have a HP 35S, 48, 50g...family) and a stored in Register 1

X (imaginary part)
- (real part)

Power (and Principal Root) of a Complex Number

By De Moive's Theorem, we can calculate the power of any complex number as:

(a + bi)^n = r^n (cos (nθ) + i sin (nθ))

Where: r = a^2 + b^2, θ = arctan (b/a), and n is a real number

Note abs(a + bi) = r and arg(a + bi) = θ (arg is named angle in the TI calculators)

On calculators such as the Casio fx-115ES, TI-36X Pro, and the Sharp EL-W516; unless n = 2 or n = 3, straight input will cause an error message. Use the above formula as the alternate. The nice thing of both the fx-115 and the TI-36X Pro is that we can store complex numbers to variables.

So the key strokes for the fx-115ES would look somewhat like this:
a + bi SHIFT STO A

Then input:
Abs(A)^(n) × (cos(n arg(A))+ i sin(n arg(A)))

For the TI-36X Pro:
a + bi sto→x [x y t z a b c d key]

Then input:
Abs(A)^(n) × (cos(n angle(A))+ i sin(n angle(A)))

For the EL-W516, complex numbers cannot be stored to variables. In addition, there is angle/argument function.

abs(a + bi)^n × (cos(n tan^-1(b ÷ a)) + i sin(n tan^-1(b ÷ a)))

A Sample RPN Routine for (a + bi)^n
Let a be stored in Register 1
Let b be stored in Register 2
Let n be stored in Register 3

STO 0. (temporary register)
