as I was going to do the finishing work on it I ended up having to catch several dozen fancy guppy fry; I hope to have it up by Wednesday wish me luck. sorry for ay inconveniences.

this is only a test entry to attempt to reslove the mathml problems it will be deleted once the problem is resolved
this should display the quadratic formula;

Now this is not really a true "equation of the week" entry as it features no equations;
Now why should you as a programmer know calculus? Is it the only path to being a great Programmer? Well no it is not some magical pathway leading to you becoming one of the pantheon of programming gods; there are many paths to being a great programer; Here is why I think you should have some understanding of calculus under your belt: you will be better equipped to solve any problems that may come you...

Sorry for the huge delay in getting this one up my bad.
anyway:
how fo we calculate a^b when both A and B are complex numbers?
well this is where the complex exponentiation formula comes into play (this is a long one so hold onto your hats!
well first we have the formula:
E+Fi=(A+Bi)^(C+Di)
how do we work that out you ask? well it just so happens that that formula is equal to:
E+Fi=(A^2+B^2)^(C/2)*e^(-D*ARG(A+Bi))*(COS(C*ARG(A+Bi)+D*ln(A^2+B^2)/2)+i*S...

the complex argument is a function which is comonly used in functions such as complex exponentiation; it is a function which takes a Complex number and returns a real number to put it into easy to understand terms:
ARG(X + i * Y) = ARCTAN(Y / X)
Or to put it in terms of qb64 code:
ARG(X + i * Y) = ATN(Y / X)

Complex numbers are not as difficult as they may first appear to be; this numeric system which is traditionally written in the form of:
A + B * i
Is the second of the division maths to be discovered; this is because like the real numbers the complex numbers are capable of being divided: however the complex numbers could also be written as
(A, B)
which...

Any one who is sufficiently well versed in number theory understands that the squareroot of a negative number produces what is known as an imaginary number:designated by the symbol i but then what is the squareroot of i or for that matter any of the general group of the complex numbers (a+b*i)?
well here is your answer:
√(A+B*i)=√((A + √(A2 + B2))/2) + SGN(B) * √((-A + √(A2 + B2))/2) * i
which for i...

Sorry for the delay I had extensive computer problems and then had to get used to a new machine:
e ^ (π * i) + 1 = 0
now for the reason behind this:
e ^ (i * x) = COS(x) + i * SIN(x)
SIN(π) = 0
COS(π) = -1

Sorry for the rather simple equation this week. Finals are coming up so I do not have alot of time. Anyway onto what you are really reading this for:
n = c/v
n is the index of refration and is unit less
c is the speed of light in a vacuum (299,792,458 m/s) any unit system may be used
v is the velocity of light in the substanced again any unit system may be used but it must be the same system used for the speed of light.
