Actually multiplying complex number (x + iy) by its complex conjugate (x - iy) does not "remove" imaginary part, but calculate square of absolute value of complex number, (x^2 + y^2). BTW. in quantum physics the wavefunction is complex valued, and its absolute value is probability density (a real valued function). --[[User:JakubNarebski|JakubNarebski]] ([[User talk:JakubNarebski|talk]]) 00:57, 18 December 2012 (UTC) | Actually multiplying complex number (x + iy) by its complex conjugate (x - iy) does not "remove" imaginary part, but calculate square of absolute value of complex number, (x^2 + y^2).

I got hit in the face with my complex conjugate and lost an eye.
