Is there any particular reason as to why certain texts use ##j## and others ##i## when looking at complex numbers? Maths is a relatively easy subject but at times made difficult with all this mix-up... i tend to use a lot of my time in trying to understand author's language and this is also evident on the convention used on argument, an area that is pretty easy/straightforward to me...this is akin to the mix up/confusion on the standard way of expressing derivatives noting that the two great mathematicians :Sir Isaac Newton and Leibnitz had different notations...

anyway, which is the standard way of expressing complex numbers?
