2.5 Modulus of a complex number

We also need the idea of the modulus of a complex number. Recall that the modulus of a real number x is defined by

For example, |7| = 7 and |−6| = 6.

In other words, |x| is the distance from the point x on the real line to the origin.

3.3 Division

Division is probably the most awkward of the four arithmetic operations. Since you may have a calculator, you do not need to be able to carry out complicated divisions by hand, but you do need to carry out simple divisions in order to check your calculator calculations. Division is the reverse process of multiplication. The quantity 12 ÷ 3 tells us how many times 3 goes into 12. Since 4 × 3 = 12, 12 ÷ 3 = 4.

5.2 What's in a phase?

In an engineering and scientific context, a phase is an arrangement of atoms that is identifiable through its recurrence – the same pattern is found time and again. For instance, the compound of hydrogen and oxygen that we call water turns up all over the place in the same form as a runny, colourless liquid; this is a specific phase of the compound H2O. In water, the atoms apparently organise themselves according to what they are and the ambient conditions of temperature a

Le Corbusier: Modernist Originality or Copying?
While describing the genius of his originality and his ‘intuitive flashes of insight’, Le Corbusier systematically obliterated unwanted references from the works of his biographers and set up a carefully vetted archive called the Le Corbusier Foundation. This lecture considers the discovery of a recently discovered handwritten entry in a ‘lost’ (ie thrown away) Le Corbusier notebook, which indicates that he found (more than) inspiration in the work of a relatively forgotten modernist ar
