Definition #64010 - Preferred [edit]
selma'o PA5
definition imaginary i (non-comma)
notes This is literally a unit, a pure number that is treated as a scalar; it is what happens when considering C to be a field over C - ordered pairs/tuples for coordinates no longer make much sense. Thus, this number operates exactly as one might think i would/should operate: as a single number, without components. In certain bases, it can be used a pure digit (which simplifies some potential numeric strings, compared to the usage of ka'o therein). See also: ka'o (and its commentary on Jbovlaste for the justification for this word), fai'u.

krtisfranks{ka'o} + "ai", which sounds like "I" in English, which is the name in English of the imaginary unit (except for some pitiable engineers).[edit]
