Complex.Division Operator

Divides a specified complex number by another specified complex number.

Namespace:  System.Numerics
Assembly:  System.Numerics (in System.Numerics.dll)

public static Complex operator /(
	Complex left,
	Complex right
)

Parameters

left
Type: System.Numerics.Complex
The value to be divided.
right
Type: System.Numerics.Complex
The value to divide by.

Return Value

Type: System.Numerics.Complex
The result of dividing left by right.

The Division method defines the division operation for complex numbers. It enables code such as the following:


Complex c1 = new Complex(2.3, 3.7);
Complex c2 = new Complex(1.4, 2.3);
Complex c3 = c1 / c2;


The division of a complex number, a + bi, and a second complex number, c + di, takes the following form:

((ac + bd) / (c2 + d2)) + ((bc - ad) / (c2 + d2)i

If the division results in an overflow in either the real or imaginary component, the value of that component is either Double.PositiveInfinity or Double.NegativeInfinity.

Languages that do not support custom operators and operator overloading can call the Divide method instead.
