*Post by Kaz Kylheku**Post by Chris M. Thomasson*Are there "more" complex numbers than reals? It seems so, every real has

its y, or imaginary, component set to zero. Therefore for each real

there is an infinity of infinite embedding's for it wrt any real with a

non-zero y axis? Fair enough, or really dumb? A little stupid? What do

you think?

The argument is not that simple. If we restrict to just integer complex

numbers like 4 + 5i, then no; there aren't more of these than integers.

Yet the same argument about axes and embeddings could be wrongly applied.

Integer complex numbers are countable: you can start at 0, and then go

in a spiral fashion: 1, 1 + i, i, -1 + i -1, ... thus they can be put

into correspondendce with the natural numbers.

This was meant for sci.math... ARHG!!!! Well, shit. Sorry... Hummm...

its fun to think about complex as vectors wrt addition, subtraction, but

multiplication is different, division, ect...

Actually, here is some of my c++ code that might be relevant here wrt

precision of complex numbers.... float, double, ect...
