  • About three months ago I wrote a paper intitled "Consideration of the objections raised against the geometrical representation of the square roots of negative quantities,” which paper was communicated to the Royal Society by Dr. Young, and read on the 19th of February last. At that time I had only discovered the manner of representing geometrically quantities of the form a + b √— 1, and of geometrically adding and multiplying such quantities, and also of raising them to powers, either whole or… CONTINUE READING
