if you do it right, you can include an op amp in the circuit that will "give back" energy lost from resistive effect in other places of the circuit. This means the op amp is equivalent to a negative resistance.

No wonder the trip fag turns out to be retarded.

Cos(x) =(e^(ix)+e^(-ix))/2
Cos'(x)=(ie^(ix)-ie^(-ix))/2
Cos'(x)=(e^(ix)-e^(-ix))/2i
Cos'(x)=-Sin(x)

Like bruh

Oh dammit, you're right. I had my sine and cosine flipped.

I meant this one inequality in complex analysis which arises from how certain functions preserve this particular geometric property. The sharp version of the inequality is hard to read.
