Let $z = x + i y$ be a complex number.

If we represent $z$ in the complex plane, the argument of $z$, or $\arg z$, is intuitively defined as the angle which $z$ yields with the real ($y = 0$) axis.

Formally, it is defined as any solution to the pair of equations:

$(1): \quad \dfrac x {\cmod z} = \map \cos {\arg z}$
$(2): \quad \dfrac y {\cmod z} = \map \sin {\arg z}$

where $\cmod z$ is the modulus of $z$.

From Sine and Cosine are Periodic on Reals, it follows that if $\theta$ is an argument of $z$, then so is $\theta + 2 k \pi$ where $k \in \Z$ is any integer.
