# Curiosity on floor functions

How do you get the floor function of a complex number? Is it defined? In particular, for example, what is the value of $$\left \lfloor \frac{1}{3} + \frac{i}{2} \right \rfloor$$?

I do not know the answer to this problem. This is merely out of curiosity, no special reason for posting.

Note that since there is no order amongst the complex numbers, there is no way to find an integer s = $$[z]$$ such that, $$z - 1 < s \leq z$$ , that you require. · 1 year, 1 month ago

Thank you! I was thinking that maybe there was some special case, but, as it turns out, finding the floor function of a complex number is, apparently, not possible. Thanks once again! · 1 year, 1 month ago
