Dear all, If I have a complex equation in the form of a+b I + c+d I == 3+ 4 I where a, b, c, and d are all assumed to be real. How do I tell Mathematica 6 to separate the real and imaginary parts to make two equations in the form of a + c == 3, and b + d == 4. I need this to apply it on a long list of equations. Thanks in advance! -- Adel Elsabbagh http://www.svlab-asu.com/aelsabbagh.html
