Hi all.

As an electronics enthusiast I come across a lot of sqiggly line math and the majority of it is over my head. It has been 30+ years since I did any real math and I have forgotten most of it.

Recently I have come to the conclusion that I can no longer avoid the deeper mathematical explanations behind the theory so I have decided to re-educate myself.

I have been hitting the text books, watching online lectures, taking notes and working through proofs etc of things that I have just learnt.

I look forward to learning from the great minds on this forum


Please excuse my j's

Hello and welcome to MHB, abaz! (Happy)

Congratulations on embarking on a journey to deepen your understanding of electrical theories, and whether you use $i$ or $j$ to represent $\sqrt{-1}$, we know what you are talking about. Both conventions are common enough to be recognized.

I look forward to seeing you around!

Best Regards,

Thank you very much for the welcome Mark.

Hi ZaidAlyafe
It would seem calculus, trig, algebra and complex numbers are used a lot in electrical theory. I don't know what fields exist and what methods they encompass.

I posted my first question and it would seem I have to look at Eulers now.

I am also into embedded programming and wouldn't mind learning a bit about Digital Signal Processing
