Handling Complex Numbers

I have not been logging my MU activity very well. I am trying to develop a simple system to test my ideas. The first one bogged down and went nowhere. At the same time looking at a lot of possibly useful math, including Hilbert spaces.

Today was thinking about neural network handling of complex numbers. Decided to let others do my thinking for me and came upon this paper after a search. Reminds me that I think all science journals should be published on the net with no charge to read; that would accelerate the advances we all desire.

Enhanced Artificial Neural Networks Using Complex Numbers by Howard E. Michel and A. S. S. Awwal. I don't know if I can use their specific model, but it is good food for thought.
