This video is about complex numbers and how they are essential to mathematics, even though they are difficult to work with. The video explains the history of complex numbers and how they came to be essential to mathematicians. It also goes over why complex numbers are so difficult to work with, and how mathematicians use them to develop their skills.

  • 00:00:00 Complex numbers are a subject that many people barely know about, and don't even realize they exist until they need to use them in mathematics. This video provides an example of how the quadratic formula can be used to solve a problem, and how the algebra behind complex numbers can be a bit confusing. Despite the confusing algebra, the video concludes with a reminder that complex numbers are still real numbers, and can be used to solve problems just like any other number.
  • 00:05:00 This video discusses complex numbers, and how they can be a bit of a hack in order to make the formulas work for certain values. The video also mentions the Fibonacci sequence, and how you need to include an irrational number in order to make the formulas work.
  • 00:10:00 The video discusses the importance of complex numbers and their relation to mathematics. It also discusses the history of mathematicians and their fight for recognition for their work in this area. Finally, the video explains why complex numbers are so difficult to work with and how mathematicians are forced to use them in order to develop their skills.
