Hey Folks,

this might be a total newbie question, but I can't figure it out.

So I am making a calculation in a float that brings me a NaN value (that is because the result of the computation is a complex number... for example sqrt(-1) ).

How can I convert this float into a complex value.

I used

http://commons.apache.org/math/api-2.0/org/apache/commons/math/complex/Complex.html

but there they only tell you how to create a Complex Number from two values. I only have my float computation....

My ultimate goal is to return just the real-value of my computation (not sqrt(-1), something more complicated....)

Thanks for any help!
