>"There are some superb papers written that in fact discount the idea that we should ever use j on the grounds that it conceals some structure that we could explain by another means"

Well, /sci/? Is there a better mathematical system out there that solves the same problems imaginary numbers do without resorting to imaginary numbers?

who the fuck uses j instead of i for an imaginary number

>>not using i, j, and k
can you even quaternion?

Imaginary numbers are tools. Complex numbers are really just 2x1 vectors of real numbers that multiply following a certain law. We just call i the vector (0,1)

You could just think of complex numbers as R[x]/<x^2 + 1>
