|MATLAB Function Reference|
As the basic imaginary unit
i is used to enter complex numbers. Since
i is a function, it can be overridden and used as a variable. This permits you to use
i as an index in
for loops, etc.
If desired, use the character
i without a multiplication sign as a suffix in forming a complex numerical constant.
You can also use the character
j as the imaginary unit.
