Abstract

The basic growth analysis using exponential function with base e is a primary factor in the management of forages and ruminants. The present study was conducted to investigate the application of complex representation of '1' and '0' to the differentiation of exp(t) expanded into infinite series. The results obtained were as follows. The differentiation of '1', resulting in '0', was replaced by pair disappearances of complex numbers with their opposites occurring after the hypothetic breakdown of multiplication form connecting them to construct '1'. The differentiation of (t/1!) with respect to t, resulting in '1', was replaced by the product of eight complex numbers constructing '1'. These results suggested that there were hypothetic pair appearances and disappearances of complex numbers according to the fluctuation between '1' and '0' occurring whenever the rate of growth was calculated.
