How can I go about performing multi-complex arithmetic in MATLAB?

  • $\begingroup$ I don't know about any built-in commands, but, I could derive a matrix representation that you could build in matlab if interested. $\endgroup$ – James S. Cook Feb 27 '15 at 20:12
  • $\begingroup$ Are multicomplex number at all related to hypercomplex numbers? $\endgroup$ – horchler Feb 27 '15 at 21:25
  • $\begingroup$ @JamesS.Cook: I actually just found one myself (see answer below), thanks though! $\endgroup$ – Mehrdad Feb 27 '15 at 21:47
  • $\begingroup$ @horchler: They are a different generalization of complex numbers, so I imagine implementing multicomplex numbers and hypercomplex numbers in MATLAB will be very similar but obviously not the same. $\endgroup$ – Mehrdad Feb 27 '15 at 21:48
  • $\begingroup$ I should talk to you more about what you are doing... let me digest that paper a bit. $\endgroup$ – James S. Cook Feb 27 '15 at 21:54

I actually found an implementation in this paper:
Computation of higher-order derivatives using the multi-complex step method

The paper describes everything in detail, but the overall idea is to make a classdef.
