An Interactive Introduction to Complex Numbers - Exponentiations Applet

Jens Siebel (University of Applied Sciences Kaiserslautern)

The Exponentiations Applet allows users to input complex numbers in either cartesian or exponential form and display them in vector form. The applet also shows the results of applying powers and roots to complex numbers. The applet, constructed using GeoGebra, requires Java 1.4.2 or later.
