Description 
Complex numbers.


Synopsis 




Rectangular form


data Complex a 
Complex numbers are an algebraic type.
For a complex number z, abs z is a number with the magnitude of z,
but oriented in the positive real direction, whereas signum z
has the phase of z, but unit magnitude.
 Constructors  (:+) !a !a  forms a complex number from its real and imaginary
rectangular components.

 Instances  


realPart :: RealFloat a => Complex a > a 
Extracts the real part of a complex number.


imagPart :: RealFloat a => Complex a > a 
Extracts the imaginary part of a complex number.


Polar form


mkPolar :: RealFloat a => a > a > Complex a 
Form a complex number from polar components of magnitude and phase.


cis :: RealFloat a => a > Complex a 
cis t is a complex value with magnitude 1
and phase t (modulo 2*pi).


polar :: RealFloat a => Complex a > (a, a) 
The function polar takes a complex number and
returns a (magnitude, phase) pair in canonical form:
the magnitude is nonnegative, and the phase in the range (pi, pi];
if the magnitude is zero, then so is the phase.


magnitude :: RealFloat a => Complex a > a 
The nonnegative magnitude of a complex number.


phase :: RealFloat a => Complex a > a 
The phase of a complex number, in the range (pi, pi].
If the magnitude is zero, then so is the phase.


Conjugate


conjugate :: RealFloat a => Complex a > Complex a 
The conjugate of a complex number.
