A complex expression is specified in Maxima by adding the real part ofthe expression to
%i times the imaginary part. Thus the roots of theequation
x^2 - 4*x + 13 = 0 are
2 + 3*%i and
2 - 3*%i. Note thatsimplification of products of complex expressions can be effected byexpanding the product. Simplification of quotients, roots, and otherfunctions of complex expressions can usually be accomplished by usingthe
