### Complex Amplitude

Note that the amplitude and phase can be viewed as the magnitude and angle of a single complex number

*complex amplitude*of the complex sinusoid defined by the left-hand side of either Eq.(1.9) or Eq.(1.10). The complex amplitude is the same whether we are talking about the continuous-time sinusoid or the discrete-time sinusoid .
