### NAME

```

Math::Cephes::Complex - Perl interface to the cephes complex number routines

```

### SYNOPSIS

```

use Math::Cephes::Complex qw(cmplx);
my \$z1 = cmplx(2,3);          # \$z1 = 2 + 3 i
my \$z2 = cmplx(3,4);          # \$z2 = 3 + 4 i
my \$z3 = \$z1->radd(\$z2);      # \$z3 = \$z1 + \$z2

```

### DESCRIPTION

This module is a layer on top of the basic routines in the cephes math library to handle complex numbers. A complex number is created via any of the following syntaxes:

```

my \$f = Math::Cephes::Complex->new(3, 2);   # \$f = 3 + 2 i
my \$g = new Math::Cephes::Complex(5, 3);    # \$g = 5 + 3 i
my \$h = cmplx(7, 5);                        # \$h = 7 + 5 i

```

the last one being available by importing cmplx. If no arguments are specified, as in

```

my \$h = cmplx();

```

then the defaults \$z = 0 + 0 i are assumed. The real and imaginary part of a complex number are represented respectively by

```

\$f->{r}; \$f->{i};

```

or, as methods,

```

\$f->r;  \$f->i;

```

and can be set according to

```

\$f->{r} = 4; \$f->{i} = 9;

```

or, again, as methods,

```

\$f->r(4);   \$f->i(9);

```

The complex number can be printed out as

```

print \$f->as_string;

```

A summary of the usage is as follows.

print \$c->{r},   , \$c->{i};   # prints real and imaginary parts of \$c
print \$c->as_string;           # prints \$c as Re(\$c) + i Im(\$c)

DESCRIPTION:

c.i  =  b.i + a.i

Subtraction:
c.r  =  b.r - a.r
c.i  =  b.i - a.i

Multiplication:
c.r  =  b.r * a.r  -  b.i * a.i
c.i  =  b.r * a.i  +  b.i * a.r

Division:
d    =  a.r * a.r  +  a.i * a.i
c.r  = (b.r * a.r  + b.i * a.i)/d
c.i  = (b.i * a.r  -  b.r * a.i)/d

```
cabs: Complex absolute value
```

SYNOPSIS:

# double a, cabs();
# cmplx z;

\$z = cmplx(2, 3);    # \$z = 2 + 3 i
\$a = cabs( \$z );

DESCRIPTION:

If z = x + iy

then

a = sqrt( x**2 + y**2 ).

Overflow and underflow are avoided by testing the magnitudes
of x and y before squaring.  If either is outside half of
the floating point full scale range, both are rescaled.

```
csqrt: Complex square root
```

SYNOPSIS:

# void csqrt();
# cmplx z, w;

\$z = cmplx(2, 3);    # \$z = 2 + 3 i
\$w = \$z->csqrt;
print \$w->{r},   , \$w->{i};  # prints real and imaginary parts of \$w
print \$w->as_string;           # prints \$w as Re(\$w) + i Im(\$w)

DESCRIPTION:

If z = x + iy,  r = |z|, then

1/2
Im w  =  [ (r - x)/2 ]   ,

Re w  =  y / 2 Im w.

Note that -w is also a square root of z.  The root chosen
is always in the upper half plane.

Because of the potential for cancellation error in r - x,
the result is sharpened by doing a Heron iteration
(see sqrt.c) in complex arithmetic.
