# Complex.js - ℂ in JavaScript

Complex.js is a well tested JavaScript library to work with complex number arithmetic in JavaScript. It implements every elementary complex number manipulation function and the API is intentionally similar to Fraction.js. Furthermore, it's the basis of Polynomial.js and Math.js.

# Examples

```let Complex = require('complex.js');

let c = new Complex("99.3+8i");
c.mul({re: 3, im: 9}).div(4.9).sub(3, 2);```

A classical use case for complex numbers is solving quadratic equations `ax² + bx + c = 0` for all `a, b, c ∈ ℝ`:

```function quadraticRoot(a, b, c) {
let sqrt = Complex(b * b - 4 * a * c).sqrt()
let x1 = Complex(-b).add(sqrt).div(2 * a)
let x2 = Complex(-b).sub(sqrt).div(2 * a)
return {x1, x2}
}

// quadraticRoot(1, 4, 5) -> -2 ± i```

# Parser

Any function (see below) as well as the constructor of the Complex class parses its input like this.

You can pass either Objects, Doubles or Strings.

## Objects

```new Complex({re: real, im: imaginary});
new Complex([real, imaginary]); // Vector/Array syntax```

If there are other attributes on the passed object, they're not getting preserved and have to be merged manually.

## Doubles

`new Complex(55.4);`

## Strings

```new Complex("123.45");
new Complex("15+3i");
new Complex("i");```

## Two arguments

`new Complex(3, 2); // 3+2i`

# Attributes

Every complex number object exposes its real and imaginary part as attribute `re` and `im`:

```let c = new Complex(3, 2);

console.log("Real part:", c.re); // 3
console.log("Imaginary part:", c.im); // 2```

# Functions

## Complex sign()

Returns the complex sign, defined as the complex number normalized by it's absolute value

## Complex sub(n)

Subtracts another complex number

## Complex mul(n)

Multiplies the number with another complex number

## Complex div(n)

Divides the number by another complex number

## Complex pow(exp)

Returns the number raised to the complex exponent (Note: `Complex.ZERO.pow(0) = Complex.ONE` by convention)

## Complex sqrt()

Returns the complex square root of the number

## Complex exp(n)

Returns `e^n` with complex exponent `n`.

## Complex log()

Returns the natural logarithm (base `E`) of the actual complex number

Note: The logarithm to a different base can be calculated with `z.log().div(Math.log(base))`.

## double abs()

Calculates the magnitude of the complex number

## double arg()

Calculates the angle of the complex number

## Complex inverse()

Calculates the multiplicative inverse of the complex number (1 / z)

## Complex conjugate()

Calculates the conjugate of the complex number (multiplies the imaginary part with -1)

## Complex neg()

Negates the number (multiplies both the real and imaginary part with -1) in order to get the additive inverse

## Complex floor([places=0])

Floors the complex number parts towards zero

## Complex ceil([places=0])

Ceils the complex number parts off zero

## Complex round([places=0])

Rounds the complex number parts

## boolean equals(n)

Checks if both numbers are exactly the same, if both numbers are infinite they are considered not equal.

## boolean isNaN()

Checks if the given number is not a number

## boolean isFinite()

Checks if the given number is finite

## Complex clone()

Returns a new Complex instance with the same real and imaginary properties

## Array toVector()

Returns a Vector of the actual complex number with two components

## String toString()

Returns a string representation of the actual number. As of v1.9.0 the output is a bit more human readable

```new Complex(1, 2).toString(); // 1 + 2i
new Complex(0, 1).toString(); // i
new Complex(9, 0).toString(); // 9
new Complex(1, 1).toString(); // 1 + i```

## double valueOf()

Returns the real part of the number if imaginary part is zero. Otherwise `null`

# Trigonometric functions

The following trigonometric functions are defined on Complex.js:

Trig Arcus Hyperbolic Area-Hyperbolic
sin() asin() sinh() asinh()
cos() acos() cosh() acosh()
tan() atan() tanh() atanh()
cot() acot() coth() acoth()
sec()  asec() sech() asech()
csc() acsc() csch() acsch()

# Geometric Equivalence

Complex numbers can also be seen as a vector in the 2D space. Here is a simple overview of basic operations and how to implement them with complex.js:

## New vector

```let v1 = new Complex(1, 0);
let v2 = new Complex(1, 1);```

## Scale vector

`scale(v1, factor):= v1.mul(factor)`

## Vector norm

`norm(v):= v.abs()`

## Translate vector

`translate(v1, v2):= v1.add(v2)`

## Rotate vector around center

`rotate(v, angle):= v.mul({abs: 1, arg: angle})`

## Rotate vector around a point

`rotate(v, p, angle):= v.sub(p).mul({abs: 1, arg: angle}).add(p)`

## Distance to another vector

`distance(v1, v2):= v1.sub(v2).abs()`

# Constants

## Complex.ZERO

A complex zero value (south pole on the Riemann Sphere)

## Complex.ONE

A complex one instance

## Complex.INFINITY

A complex infinity value (north pole on the Riemann Sphere)

## Complex.NAN

A complex NaN value (not on the Riemann Sphere)

## Complex.I

An imaginary number i instance

## Complex.PI

A complex PI instance

## Complex.E

A complex euler number instance

## Complex.EPSILON

A small epsilon value used for `equals()` comparison in order to circumvent double imprecision.

# Installation

Installing complex.js is as easy as cloning this repo or use one of the following commands:

`bower install complex.js`

or

`npm install complex.js`

# Using Complex.js with the browser

```<script src="complex.js"></script>
<script>
console.log(Complex("4+3i"));
</script>```

# Using Complex.js with require.js

```<script src="require.js"></script>
<script>
requirejs(['complex.js'],
function(Complex) {
console.log(Complex("4+3i"));
});
</script>```

# Coding Style

As every library I publish, complex.js is also built to be as small as possible after compressing it with Google Closure Compiler in advanced mode. Thus the coding style orientates a little on maxing-out the compression rate. Please make sure you keep this style if you plan to extend the library.

# Testing

If you plan to enhance the library, make sure you add test cases and all the previous tests are passing. You can test the library with

`npm test`
