Let $h>0$ and let $z \in \mathbb{C}_h$, the Hilger complex plane. The Hilger imaginary part of $z$ is defined by $$\mathrm{Im}_h(z)=\dfrac{\mathrm{Arg}(zh+1)}{h},$$ where $\mathrm{Arg}$ denotes the principal argument of $z$ (i.e. $-\pi < \mathrm{Arg(z)} \leq \pi$).

Properties[edit]

Theorem: The following inequality holds for $z \in \mathbb{C}_h$: $$-\dfrac{\pi}{h} < \mathrm{Im}_h(z) \leq \dfrac{\pi}{h}.$$

Proof:

Limit of Hilger real and imag parts yields classical
Hilger real part oplus Hilger imaginary part equals z
