In the complex vector algebra, the oscillations of a charged particle immersed in zeropoint field have been studied recently by the author [26].
He covers basics, vector algebra, vector geometry, transformations, orientations, polygons and polyhedra, curves and surfaces, visibility, lighting, and other paradigms.
To uproot the misleading concept of negative length or distance from the basic level of trigonometry, realistic definitions of trigonometric ratios have been offered in Bhattacharjee (2012) with the help of vector algebra and they have been subsequently employed to derive the basic formulae of trigonometry in an unambiguous manner.
Last but not least, is should be mentioned that the use of the particular Whittaker scalars was chosen only for their interesting internal symmetry of the resulting vector algebra. One could introduce for example a simpler harmonic dependence by choosing arbitrary functions F(z) cos([omega]t), G(x, -), [psi](x, y) although not necessarily with exactly the same vector algebra.
Vector algebra was our chapter in 12th class it's fully integrating with the game.
