If concrete imaginary numbers
are physically real, do they measure anything?
In the year 1673, Wallis, while writing in defence of imaginary numbers

Al Hilani said that "the comeback was not based on setting high and imaginary numbers
"money wise" which is what many accused him of, yet it came because there is great love and respect between him and Rotana.
Another inviting avenue of exploration (well, not that inviting) would be pondering the curiosities of imaginary time, in analogy to the imaginary numbers
of mathematics (which figured prominently in Minkowski's work).
may be followed by either i or j; however, Mathcad normally displays them followed by i where i equals the square root of negative 1.
The book provides refreshers on vectors, matrix algebra, and imaginary numbers
, but assumes no previous knowledge of quaternions.
Mathematical achievements such as concepts of irrational numbers, imaginary numbers
, the infinitesimal, the fourth dimension, periodic space, and more are explored in terms accessible to lay readers, and their intersection with art, literature, philosophy, and physics among other disciplines is laid bare.
The still greater challenge that Mazur attempts is to provide the reader a glimpse into the minds of early mathematicians as they struggled to understand and come to grips with the existence of seemingly improbable, imaginary numbers
