Subject [jira] [Created] (NUMBERS-27) In Complex, replace homegrown hypot with Java.Math.hypot

------------------------------------

             Summary: In Complex, replace homegrown hypot with Java.Math.hypot
                 Key: NUMBERS-27
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/NUMBERS-27
             Project: Commons Numbers
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Eric Barnhill
            Priority: Trivial


ISO C standard for Complex numbers states that the abs() must be obtained with a hypot() function
to avoid over and underflows. The function is correctly hand-coded in the current iteration
of Complex, but I see no need for this. Propose replacing with java.lang.Math.hypot to make
the code and its conformance to ISO C more easily comprehensible.
