A natural and extremely useful extension of the familiar real numbers. They can be introduced formally as follows. Consider the two-dimensional real vector space consisting of all ordered pairs (a1, a2) of real numbers. Geometrically this space can be identified with the ordinary euclidean plane, viewing the real numbers a1, a2 as the coordinates of a point in the plane.
