\frac{b}{a} \tag{0.1}

\end{equation}for any complex numbers $a$ and $b$, we found the result, for any complex number $b$

\begin{equation}

\frac{b}{0}=0, \tag{0.2}

\end{equation}incidentally in [10] by the Tikhonov regularization for the Hadamard product inversions for matrices, and we discussed their properties and gave several physical interpretations on the general fractions in [5] for the case of real numbers. The result is a very special case for general fractional functions in [4].

The division by zero has a long and mysterious story over the world $($see, for example, Google site with division by zero$)$ with its physical viewpoints since the document of zero in India on AD 628, however, Sin-Ei, Takahasi $($[11]$)$ $($see also [5] $)$ established a simple and decisive interpretation $($1.2$)$ by analyzing some full extensions of fractions and by showing the complete characterization for the property $($1.2$)$:

\begin{equation}

F (b, a)F (c, d)= F (bc, ad)

\end{equation}

$$

F (b, a) = \frac {b}{a }, \quad a, b \in {\bf C }, a \ne 0.

$$

\[

F (b, 0) = 0.

\]

We thus should consider, for any complex number $b$, as $($1.2$)$;

that is, for the mapping

\begin{equation}

w = \frac{1}{z},

\end{equation}

the image of $z=0$ is $w=0$ $($

However, the division by zero $($1.2$)$ is now clear, indeed, for the introduction of $($1.2$)$, we have several independent approaches as in:

1) by the generalization of the fractions by the Tikhonov regularization or by the Moore-Penrose generalized inverse,

2) by the intuitive meaning of the fractions $($division$)$ by H. Michiwaki,

3) by the unique extension of the fractions by S. Takahasi, as in the above,

4) by the extension of the fundamental function $W = 1/z$ from ${\bf C} \setminus \{0\}$ into ${\bf C}$ such that $W =1/z$ is a one to one and onto mapping from $ {\bf C} \setminus \{0\} $ onto ${\bf C} \setminus \{0\}$ and the division by zero $1/0=0$ is a one to one and onto mapping extension of the function $W =1/z $ from ${\bf C}$ onto ${\bf C}$,

and

5) by considering the values of functions with the mean values of functions.

Furthermore, in $($[6]$)$ we gave the results in order to show the reality of the division by zero in our world:

A) a field structure containing the division by zero --- the Yamada field ${\bf Y}$,

B) by the gradient of the $y$ axis on the $(x,y)$ plane --- $\tan \frac{\pi}{2} =0$,

C) by the reflection $1/\overline{z}$ of $z$ with respect to the unit circle with center at the origin on the complex $z$ plane --- the reflection point of zero is zero,

and

D) by considering rotation of a right circle cone having some very interesting

phenomenon from some practical and physical problem --- EM radius.

See also [3] for the relationship between fields and the division by zero, and the importance of the division by zero for computer science.

Meanwhile, J. P. Barukcic and I. Barukcic $($[2]$)$ discussed recently the relation between the division $0/0$ and special relativity of Einstein. Furthermore, Reis and Anderson $($[8, 9]$)$ extends the system of the real numbers by defining division by zero. Meanwhile, we should refer to up-to-date information:

Kurt Arbenz https://www.researchgate.net/publication/272022137

Here, we recall Albert Einstein’s words on mathematics: Blackholes are where God divided by zero. I don't believe in mathematics. George Gamow $($1904-1968$)$ Russian-born American nuclear physicist and cosmologist remarked that ”it is well known to students of high school algebra” that divi-sion by zero is not valid; and Einstein admitted it as

For our results, see the survey style announcements 179, 185, 237, 246, 247, 250 and 252 of the Institute of Reproducing Kernels $($[13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19]$)$.

At this moment, the following theorem may be looked as the fundamental theorem of the division by zero:

The following corollary shows how to determine the value of an analytic function at the singular point; that is, the value is determined from the regular part of the Laurent expansion:

f(a) = \frac{1}{2\pi i} \int_{\gamma} f(z) \frac{dz}{z - a},

$$where the $\gamma$ is a rectifiable simple Jordan closed curve that surrounds one time the point $a$ on a regular region of the function $f(z)$.

In particular, note that the concept of parallel lines is very important in the Euclidean plane and non-Euclidean geometry. The essential results may be stated as known since the discovery of the division by zero $z/0=0$. However, for importance, we would like to state clearly the details.

\begin{equation}

\lim_{z \to \infty} z = \infty,\tag{2.1}

\end{equation}however,\begin{equation}

[z]_{z =\infty} =0,\tag{2.2}

\end{equation} by the division by zero. The difference of $($2.1$)$ and $($2.2$)$ is very important as we see clearly by the function $1/z$ and the behavior at the origin. The limiting value to the origin and the value at the origin are different. For surprising results, we will state the property in the real space as follows:

\begin{equation}

\lim_{x\to +\infty} x =+\infty , \quad \lim_{x\to -\infty} x = -\infty,\tag{2.3}

\end{equation} however

\begin{equation}

[x]_{ +\infty } =0, \quad [x]_{ -\infty } =0.\tag{2.4}

\end{equation}

\begin{equation}

L_k: a_k x + b_k y + c_k = 0, k=1,2. \tag{3.1}

\end{equation} The common point is given by, if $a_1 b_2 - a_2 b_1 \ne 0$; that is, the lines are not parallel

\left(\frac{b_1 c_2 - b_2 c_1}{a_1 b_2 - a_2 b_1}, \frac{a_2 c_1 - a_1 c_2}{a_1 b_2 - a_2 b_1}\right).\tag{3.2}

\end{equation} By the division by zero, we can understand that if $a_1 b_2 - a_2 b_1 = 0$, then the commom point is always given by

\begin{equation}

(0,0),\tag{3.3}

\end{equation}even the two lines are the same. This fact shows that the image of the Euclidean space in Section 2 is right.

For a function

\begin{equation}

S(x,y) = a(x^2+y^2) + 2gx + 2fy + c,\tag{4.1}

\end{equation}the radius $R$ of the circle $S(x,y) = 0$ is given by

\begin{equation}

R = \sqrt{\frac{g^2 +f^2 -ac}{a^2}}.\tag{4.2}

\end{equation}If $a = 0$, then the area $\pi R^2$ of the circle is zero, by the division by zero; that is, the circle is line $($degenerate$)$.

Here, note that by the Theorem, $R^2$ is zero for $a = 0$, but for (4.2) itself

\begin{equation}

R = \frac{-c}{2} \frac{1}{\sqrt{g^2 + f^2}}\tag{4.3}

\end{equation}for $a=0$. However, this result will be nonsense, and so, in this case, we should consider $R$ as zero as $ 0^2 =0$. When we apply the division by zero to functions, we can consider, in general, many ways.

For example, for the function $z/(z-1)$, when we insert $z=1$ in numerator and denominator, we have\begin{equation}

\left[\frac{z}{z-1}\right]_{z = 1} = \frac{1}{0} =0.\tag{4.4}

\end{equation}However, in the sense of the Theorem,

from the identity\begin{equation}

\frac{z}{z-1} = \frac{1}{z-1} + 1,\tag{4.5}

\end{equation}we have\begin{equation}

\left[\frac{z}{z-1}\right]_{z = 1} = 1.\tag{4.6}

\end{equation} By the Theorem, for analytic functions we can give uniquely determined values at isolated singular points, however, the values by means of the Laurent expansion are not always reasonable. We will need to consider many interpretations for reasonable values.

In addition, the center of the circle (4.3) is given by\begin{equation}

\left( - \frac{g}{a},- \frac{f}{a}\right).\tag{4.7}

\end{equation}Therefore, the center of a general line

\begin{equation}

2gx + 2fy + c=0\tag{4.8}

\end{equation}may be considered as the origin $(0,0)$, by the division by zero.

We can see similarly the 3 dimensional versions. We consider the functions\begin{equation}

S_j(x,y) = a_j(x^2+y^2) + 2g_jx + 2f_jy + c_j.\tag{4.9}

\end{equation}The distance $d$ of the centers of the circles $S_1(x,y) =0$ and $S_2(x,y) =0$ is given by\begin{equation}

d^2= \frac{g_1^2 + f_1^2}{a_1^2} - 2 \frac{g_1 g_2 + f_1 f_2}{a_1 a_2} + \frac{g_2^2 + f_2^2}{a_2^2}.\tag{4.10}

\end{equation}If $a_1 =0$, then by the division by zero

\begin{equation}d^2= \frac{g_2^2 + f_2^2}{a_2^2}.\tag{4.11}

\end{equation}Then, $S_1(x,y) =0$ is a line and its center is the origin $(0,0)$.
