```hi ,
when i use minimize command with real numbers i get the required answer but
with complex number it doesnt give me any answer or error

Syntax::sntxb : Expression cannot begin with "(1+1 i) ` x[1]+(1-1 i) ` x[2]".
Syntax::tsntxi : "(1+1 i) ` x[1]" is incomplete; more input is needed.
Syntax::sntxi : Incomplete expression; more input is needed.

My minimize expression is

((1+1i)*x[1] +(1-1i)*x[2] )^2 +(x[1]+x[2])^2

in methamatica it becomes

Minimize[{( x[1]+x[2])2
+((1+1i)x[1]+(1-1 i)x[2])2},{x[1],x[2]}]

i want my answer to be in complex number come somebody tell me where i am wrong

thanx

```
