Being and no an integer greater than 1we have:
This formula is known as Moivre's 1st Formula.
Let's consider for later we calculate . To apply Moivre's 1st formula, we need to calculate the modulus and the argument of z.
If , its nth roots are given by:
This expression is known as Moivre's 2nd Formula.
Determine the cubic roots of z = 8.
Let's calculate the modulus and the argument of z for the application of the 2nd Moivre formula:
The cubic roots of 8 are given by:
The number k can assume the values 0, 1 and 2:
Geometrically, note that the three roots are over a radius circumference. 2 and are vertices of an equilateral triangle; his arguments form a PAN, whose first term is 0 and the reason é.
