[quote user=deokanon][quote user=tuoni]WHAT THE ACTUAL MOTHERLOVING FUCK AM I SUPPOSED TO USE IT FOR!? [/quote]

So much - link. Probably easier question is: what isn't it used for?[/quote]

*cough*

It's very cool (it really is), but I simply can't find a practical use for it. If they want mere mortals to care about it (lamenting about its obscurity), they need to make it practical.

Not really, most of it is just scalar and vector maths. Even after all these years, trying to gobble up as many equations as possible I have only come across one single complex equation. If I remember correctly, it's for calculating lateral throwoff. The complex number gives you the angle and the magnitude... so in the end it's just a fancy vector.

Perhaps there are models out there that make very heavy use of complex numbers, but so far I haven't seen it.

(EDIT)

I tell a lie, I also have complex equations for calculating yaw.
