**Complex Base Systems**

In arithmetic, a **complex base system** is a positional numeral system whose radix is an imaginary (proposed by Donald Knuth in 1955) or complex number (proposed by S. Khmelnik in 1964 and Walter F. Penney in 1965).

### Famous quotes containing the words systems, complex and/or base:

“I am beginning to suspect all elaborate and special *systems* of education. They seem to me to be built up on the supposition that every child is a kind of idiot who must be taught to think.”

—Anne Sullivan (1866–1936)

“The money *complex* is the demonic, and the demonic is God’s ape; the money *complex* is therefore the heir to and substitute for the religious *complex*, an attempt to find God in things.”

—Norman O. Brown (b. 1913)

“Your top has sunk too low,

Your *base* has spread too wide,

For you to roll one stone

Down if you tried.”

—Robert Frost (1874–1963)
