 P: 13 what is the difference between conjugate of a complex number and conjugate reciprocal of a complex number i am asking with reference to z transform....Thanyou
 P: 1,782 Can you explain what a complex conjugate is? Can you explain what the reciprocal of a complex number is?
P: 13
 Quote by skeptic2 Can you explain what a complex conjugate is? Can you explain what the reciprocal of a complex number is?
what i understand is if a+bi is any complex number then a-bi is its complex conjugate.. and 1/(a-bi) is reciprocal of complex conjugate

You are correct about the complex conjugate.

For the reciprocal of the the complex conjugate the best explanation is the one I found in Wikipedia at:

 P: 13 thanks
