Abstract : The least square solution of a set of linear equations with complex coefficients and its relation to the equivalent real equations is discussed. IN particular it is shown that the square root method of solving the normal equations is extendible to the complex field and that fewer operations are required to effect this solution by computing with complex numbers rather than with real numbers.
