From the Theory of “Congeneric Surd Equations” to “Segre's Bicomplex Numbers” (2017)


We will study the historical emergence of Tessarines or Bicomplex numbers, from their origin as “imaginary” solutions of irrational equations, to their insertion in the context of study of the algebras of hypercomplex numbers. Analizzeremo l'evoluzione storica dei Tessarini o numeri Bicomplessi, dalla loro origine come soluzioni “immaginarie” di equazioni irrazionali, al loro inserimento nel contesto dello studio delle algebre di ipercomplessi.
