    The square root notation without sign represents the positive square root






    Identity of indiscernibles (equivalent to positive-definiteness)

    Triangle inequality (equivalent to subadditivity)

    Preservation of division (equivalent to multiplicativeness)

    (equivalent to subadditivity)

  • The absolute value of a complex number is the distance from  to the origin
  • For any complex number

  • Where  and  are real numbers, the absolute value or modulus of is
  • denoted  and is defined as
  • The absolute value of a real number  is equal to its absolute value when considered as a complex number
