# Symbolic Evaluation of Complex Variable Operations

## Symbolic Evaluation of Complex Variable Operations

(OP)
I have an equation with several complex variable operations (add, subtract, square root, multiply, absolute value, product, divide).

I am wondering if there is a way to get a symbolic evaluation of just the real part and just the imaginary part, with a separate result for each.

I am guessing that if the real part is found separately from the imaginary, then each component is simplified, that it would lead to an increase in efficiency.  Just a guess though.  I would then feed that into Excel, where I need some speed improvement over my current solution, which is done using complex variables via the analysis toolpak.

Turns out its pretty simple to do.  Symbolic/Evaluate/Complex.

Unfortunately, my equations were too complex to add much value via decomposition.
