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.

Remember to wrap math in \( ... \) or \[ ... \] to ensure proper formatting.`2 \times 3`

`2^{34}`

`a_{i-1}`

`\frac{2}{3}`

`\sqrt{2}`

`\sum_{i=1}^3`

`\sin \theta`

`\boxed{123}`

TopNewestNote 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.

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!

No problem! The lack of an order in C means that a lot of our intuition that we've adapted for R has to change.
