Visualising the Roots of Quadratic Equations with Complex Coefficients
Bardell, Nicholas S.
Australian Senior Mathematics Journal, v28 n1 p7-28 2014
This paper is a natural extension of the root visualisation techniques first presented by Bardell (2012) for quadratic equations with real coefficients. Consideration is now given to the familiar quadratic equation "y = ax[superscript 2] + bx + c" in which the coefficients "a," "b," "c" are generally complex, as shown explicitly in Equation (1), which is presented in the article, with the usual notation.
