Questions involving complex numbers, that is numbers of the form $a+bi$ where $i^2=-1$ and $a,b\in\mathbb{R}$.

A complex number is a number in the form $z=a + bi$, where $a$ and $b$ are real numbers and $i$ is the imaginary unit, or alternatively, $z=r\cdot e^{i\theta}$, with $r$ called the magnitude and $\theta$ called the argument.

The complex conjugate, $\overline z$, is $a-bi$ or $r\cdot e^{-i\theta}$.
