Dear Prof Vijilant

Can we compute average of few complex numbers?

Thanks

Prashant

Hello Prashant. There is no reason why not. Either mean or mode. But not median since there is no greater or less for complex numbers. Of course you could order them by modulus.

If three complex numbers represent the vertices of a triangle in the Argand diagram, then the mean represents the centroid of the triangle. I can't think of any other use.

Best wishes

I taught John Birt, former Director of the BBC in 1961. His homework book was the most perfect I have ever marked. And also the most neat. I could tell he was destined for great things.
One of my classmates was the poet Roger McGough, and I have a mention in his autobiography.
