Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4A Gaussian unit is a Gaussian integer \(z\) such that \(\dfrac{1}{z}\) is also a Gaussian integer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4Well, we essentially want to show that \(\pm i,\pm 1\; \; 1\) and they are the only ones.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4But how will I show that they are the only ones?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4I mean Gaussian units. See my first post

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4OK yeah, I mean that they are a unit.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1units of Gaussian Integer ... looks like related to ring theory.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What math is this? I see on the MSE thing it says: abstractalgebra, ringtheory. So is it both?

ParthKohli

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4Ring theory is a subset of abstract algebra. This is theoretical mathematics also known as pure mathematics.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4@Opcode that is why they say that among a Ph.D in physics, a Ph.D in CS, a Ph.D in theoretical math and a large pepperoni pizza, the most different thing is a Ph.D in theoretical math. The other three can feed a family of four XD

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@Opcode the abstract algebra is the generalization of the algebra we do. They make use of properties of these algebraic structures to solve the problem than we solve things directly.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4@experimentX Can we call this complex analysis?

Opcode

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ouch. So much things to learn _ If I was to attempt to get a Ph. D I'd be at age 40 :(.

experimentX

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I think you can't .... I haven't so far explored the depths of complex analysis. But I know these types of things get's mumbledjumbled up.

experimentX

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I think abstract algebra is at more fundamental level than complex analysis.
