Talk:Complex conjugate

From Rosetta Code

Do we need a whole new task?[edit]

Could this be added to Arithmetic/Complex? It seems weird to have a separate task for something this simple. I know that task is older and has a lot of implementations, but if a language has a complex library built in then it probably has this function. I think it would be simple to make the change for many languages. --Mwn3d 20:28, 26 January 2012 (UTC)

Arithmetic/Complex already shows complex conjugate for a few languages. I created this draft because I believed that complex conjugate was not part of Arithmetic/Complex. I like your idea, and I will merge complex conjugate into Arithmetic/Complex unless another user performs the merge, or gives a different idea. Also, I intend to create another task for conjugate transpose of a matrix. --Kernigh 20:52, 26 January 2012 (UTC)
The conjugate transpose sounds like a different beast so it should be separate from Matrix transposition. Be sure to include a link to and from the plain transpose page too. Unless of course someone else thinks that it could be merged into the original transpose page. --Mwn3d 20:59, 26 January 2012 (UTC)
Conjugate Transpose is the composition of conjugate with transpose. I am not sure that's worth a task. In the worst case you might have to map conjugate over every element of a matrix, but other than that it's either two function calls or a builtin. --Rdm 22:32, 29 January 2012 (UTC)
