## 3.3 Complex numbers

Complex numbers, as implemented by the class `cl_N`

, have a real
part and an imaginary part, both real numbers. A complex number whose
imaginary part is the exact number `0`

is automatically converted
to a real number.

Complex numbers can arise from real numbers alone, for example
through application of `sqrt`

or transcendental functions.
