Complex numbers can be identified with the points of the real plane. Their absolute value corresponds to their distance from the origin, while their real and imaginary parts are their projections onto the real and imaginary axes respectively. The complex conjugate of a complex number is obtained by reflection with respect to the real axis.

In polar coordinates, the Euler-Moivre-formula yields the representation

In the table below some complex numbers are given in polar coordinates.
