Complex Variables Why is it necessary to learn the complex variable theory ? † Useful for certain types of integrals (the residue theorem). Z ∞ 4 Z 2π x cos θ (Examples:) 6 dx; 2 dθ 0 1+x 0 1+sin θ 1 † Useful for 2-D fluid mechanics/solid mechanics problems . Δu = Δv = 0; w = u+iv: 2 † Real variable theories are subsets of the complex variable theory (the fundamental theorem of algebra ). With a complex number in the form of z = a+ib; p where i = ¡1, divisions and multiplications between two complex numbers are computed as z1 2 = (a 1ib )1a +i2 ) 2 = (a a ¡b b )+i(a b +a b ); (1) 1 2 1 2 1 2 2 1 and z (a +ib )(a ¡ib ) 1 = 1 1 2 2 z2 (a2+ib2)(2 ¡i2 ) (2) = a1 2+b 2 2+i a2 2¡a 2 2: a2+b 2 a2+b 2 The complex conjugate of z = a+ib is defined as fl= a¡ib: It follows z1+z 2 = z1+z ;2 z1 2 = z1 2; (3) ‡ · z1 = 1: z2 2 Note that 2 zfl= jzj : 1 3 The real part and the imaginary part of any analytic functions (e.g. f(z) = z ) satisfy the Laplace equation. For instance, z = (x+iy) = x ¡3xy +i(3x y¡y );3 so u = x ¡3xy ; v = 3x y¡y : Verify that both u and v satisfy Δu = 0; Δv = 0: 2An algebraic equation of the n-th order has n zeros. Complex Plane With the introduction of the imaginary number, i, it is possible to associate z = a+ib with a point (a;b) in a 2-D plane. y z=a+i b r b q x a p 2 2 jzj = p a +b (4) = zfl; and argz = θ: It is noted that z = a+ib µ ¶ p = a +b 2 p a +i p b a +b a +b2 (5) = jzj(cos θ +isin θ) = re ; where Euler’s formula iθ 3 e = cos θ +isin θ; was used. On the complex plane, it is possible to visualize the operations among complex numbers as shown in the table below: z1§z 2 addition of vectors i(1 +2 ) z1 2 r1 2e (7) z1 1ei(1 ¡θ2) z2 2 Using Euler’s formulas, iθ e = cos θ +isin θ; (8) e¡iθ = cos θ ¡isin θ; trigonometric functions can be written as cos θ = e +e¡iθ; iθ2¡iθ (9) sin θ = e ¡e : 2i 3 2 3 4 eiθ = 1+(iθ)+ (i) + (iθ)+ (iθ::: ‡ θ θ4 ·! ‡ 4!θ3 θ5 · = 1¡ 2!+ 4!¡::: +i θ ¡ 3!+ 5!¡::: (6) = cos θ +isin θ: It is seen from the above that sine and cosine functions are the even and odd parts of f(θ) = e . Similarly, the hyperbolic sine and cosine functions can be defined as (the even and odd parts of f(θ) = e ) cosh θ = e+e¡ θ; θ 2¡ θ (10) sinh θ = e¡e : 2 The following similarity can be immediately verified: (sin θ) = cos θ (sinh θ) = cosh θ 0 0 (cos θ) = ¡sin θ (cosh θ) = sinh θ cos θ +sin θ = 1 cosh θ ¡sinh θ = 1 Example 1 Evaluate sin i. ii ¡ii sin i = e ¡e e1¡e = 2i (11) = i(e¡ ): 2 e Note that this is a pure imaginary number. Example 2 Evaluate Z ∞ ¡x I · e sin xdx: 0 R ∞ ¡x ix 4 I = ℑ R0 e e dx = ℑ ∞e(¡1+i)xdx h0 i ∞ = ℑ 1 e(¡1+i)x ¡ ¡1+i ¢ 0 = ℑ 1 (0¡1) 5 (12) ¡ ¡¡1 ¡1¡i ¢ = ℑ ¡ ¡1+i ¢1¡i = ℑ 1+ i1 1 2 2 = 2: 6 Example 3 Solve sin z = 3 . Let z = x+iy, then, sin z = sin(x+iy) (13) 1 ‡ i(x+iy) ¡i(x+iy) = e ¡e (14) 2i 1 ¡ ¢ = cos x(e¡y¡e )+isin x(e ¡y+e ) ; (15) 2i so ¡y y ¡y y cos x(e ¡e )+isin x(e +e ) = 6i; (16) or by comparing the imaginary part and real part of both sides, cos x(e¡y¡e ) = 0; (17) sin x(e¡y+e ) = 6: (18) 4 5(f) is th(¡1+i)xn¡x ixart of f¡x ix As x ! ∞, e = e e ! 0 since e! 0 and e = cos x+isin x is bounded (but indefinite). This equation does not make sense if z is a real number. If ey¡e = 0 in eq.(17), it follows = 1 or y = 0 which implies that sin x = 3 from eq.(18) which is impossible, so cos x = 0 must be satisfied from eq.(17). Therefore, π x = 2 §n π; (19) and π ¡y y sin( §nπ)(e +e ) = 6: (20) 2 For the right hand side to be positive, π sin( §nπ); 2 must be positive which implies that π x = §2n π: (21) 2 From eq.(20), ¡y y e +e = 6; (22) or (e ) ¡6e +1 = 0; (23) which can be solved as p y = ln(3§2 2); (24) so finally ¡π ¢ p z = §2n π +i ln(3§2 2): (25) 2
