The square root of -1

Wonderful programme on Radio 4 last night: the sainted Melvyn and chums on imaginary numbers. You can still listen to it here.

Great to hear an intellectual discussion on a difficult topic by enthused participants. I kept on listening even when the conversation turned to calculus.

Did I understand it? Not a word - my degree was from the Faculty of Arts. But it was still a good programme.
