RE: Plot Sequencies of Complex Functions


Eleanna,

Here is a table of powers for a sample complex point z. (I suppressed the
output for the posting.)

complexpoints = Table[(0.6 + 0.5I)^n, {n, 1, 20}];

The following converts the complex numbers to a Point with x and y
coordinates.

coordpoints = Point[{Re[#], Im[#]}] & /@ complexpoints;

The following then plots the series of points.

Show[
    Graphics[
      {AbsolutePointSize[5], coordpoints}],
    AspectRatio -> Automatic,
    Frame -> True,
    Axes -> True, AxesStyle -> Gray,
    ImageSize -> 450];

With the Cardano3 package you can use graphical primitives that directly use
complex numbers. So in the following we Map ComplexPoint directly onto the
complex numbers. There are also routines such as ComplexLine, ComplexCircle,
ComplexText, ComplexArrow and ComplexCurve for plotting complex expressions
as curves.

Needs["Cardano3`ComplexGraphics`"]

Draw2D[
    {AbsolutePointSize[5],
      ComplexPoint /@ Table[(0.6 + 0.5I)^n, {n, 1, 20}]},
    AspectRatio -> Automatic,
    Frame -> True,
    Axes -> True, AxesStyle -> Gray,
    ImageSize -> 450];

Hi all,

  I am trying to graph sequencies of complex numbers (for instance, z^n),
but I cannot come up with a working idea.
  Does anyone have any suggestions?

  Many Thanks to all readers,
  Eleanna
