Background: Complex Numbers and Linear Algebra

  • Michael W. Frazier
Part of the Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics book series (UTM)


We start by setting some notation. The natural numbers {1, 2, 3, 4,...} will be denoted by ℕ, and the integers {..., −3, −2, −1, 0, 1, 2, 3,...} by ℤ. Complex numbers will be introduced later. We assume familiarity with the real numbers ℝ and their properties, which we briefly summarize here. The basic algebraic properties of ℝ follow from the fact that ℝ is a field.
