Complex Numbers App Makes the Imaginary Seem More Tangible
It’s not quite back-to-school time anymore, and not many people deal with complex numbers on a day to day basis. But if you’re a student or engineer, it never hurts to incorporate a new tool to streamline your tasks.
XDA Forum Member WeissenbornC recently created an app to help you work with complex numbers more easily. The app is divided up into four pages: basic arithmetic, quadratic equation, roots, and polynomial factorization.
Basic Arithmetic allows you to perform simple operations on complex numbers such as adding or multiplying them, taking their root, or performing trigonometric functions. Quadratic Equation allows you to use real and complex coefficients to solve using the quadratic equation. Roots allows you to solve n-degree polynomials for all of the roots using the Durand Kerner Method. Finally, Polynomial Factorization takes an n-degree polynomial and divides it into n factors.
If you’re a student or engineer constantly working with complex numbers or if you simply want a tool to help you with quadratic factorization, Complex Numbers can potentially be a huge time saver. Head over to the application thread to give Complex Numbers a shot!

In the spirit of improving the core Android experience, Google is changing Android M to be smarter about managing power. Their new Doze feature comprises of two primary roles which allow Android to use motion detection in order to predict activity, and go into deep sleep at the right time based on accelerometer readings. In order to extend your screen off battery life, Android M will now monitor your activity levels and if it detects that your device has...
At I/O 2015, Google tackled the information problem in mobile once more, this time through pictures: “how incredible is it that we all have a camera in our pockets at any moment? (...) These moments tell your story (...)[but] taking more pictures and videos makes it harder to relieve memories due to the sheer volume”. This is why they are revamping Google Photos and centering it around 3 big ideas: Creating a home for all photos and videos that is...
VP of Engineering Jen Fitzpatrick began talking about what Google is doing to help “the next billion” come online. More and more people are getting their first smartphone, and for many people this first phone will be their first computer. The majority of the next billion will be Android users and they “want to remove the barriers of smartphone adoption”. While there are huge displays of phones on sale, not all are able to run the latest and greatest...
