Do imaginary numbers ever manifest themselves in the physical world as we know it? And when I say that, i mean do they ever appear in solutions to problems that we know have physical meaning and aren't in the solutions or derivations purely as mathematical shortcuts?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Hopefully this question makes sense as im not well versed on that advanced of mathematics.
