- | 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. |
