-Imaginary numbers are essential in modern theories of physics like [[theories:​quantum_mechanics:​canonical_quantum_mechanics|quantum mechanics]] and [[theories:​quantum_field_theory:​canonical|quantum field theory]]. In these theories, we describe a physical system using complex functions, which means functions that contain combinations of imaginary numbers as arguments.+Imaginary numbers are essential in modern theories of physics like [[theories:​quantum_mechanics:​canonical|quantum mechanics]] and [[theories:​quantum_field_theory:​canonical|quantum field theory]].

 Moreover, imaginary numbers can often be used to make calculations simpler. ​ Moreover, imaginary numbers can often be used to make calculations simpler. ​
