Investigating Integer Square Roots of Complex Numbers


Suppose sqrt(a+bi) =c+di where a, b, c and d are all integers.
Under what conditions will this occur? This session begins with determining what these conditions are and then extending the investigating to determine how these conditions link to a particular sequence of prime numbers (also linked to Gaussian primes) and primitive Pythagorean triples.
