## Question:Selecting only elements with positive imaginary part from a list - how to ?

Hello All,

From the list

t1 := [((-4*Pi^2-beta^2+4*beta^2*Q^2*Pi^2+8*I*Pi^2*beta*Q)/(4*Pi^2+beta^2-4*beta^2*Q*Pi+4*beta^2*Q^2*Pi^2))^(1/2), -((-4*Pi^2-beta^2+4*beta^2*Q^2*Pi^2+8*I*Pi^2*beta*Q)/(4*Pi^2+beta^2-4*beta^2*Q*Pi+4*beta^2*Q^2*Pi^2))^(1/2), ((-4*Pi^2-beta^2+4*beta^2*Q^2*Pi^2-8*I*Pi^2*beta*Q)/(4*Pi^2+beta^2-4*beta^2*Q*Pi+4*beta^2*Q^2*Pi^2))^(1/2), -((-4*Pi^2-beta^2+4*beta^2*Q^2*Pi^2-8*I*Pi^2*beta*Q)/(4*Pi^2+beta^2-4*beta^2*Q*Pi+4*beta^2*Q^2*Pi^2))^(1/2), ((-4*Pi^2-beta^2+4*beta^2*Q^2*Pi^2+8*I*Pi^2*beta*Q)/(4*Pi^2+beta^2-4*beta^2*Q*Pi+4*beta^2*Q^2*Pi^2))^(1/2), -((-4*Pi^2-beta^2+4*beta^2*Q^2*Pi^2+8*I*Pi^2*beta*Q)/(4*Pi^2+beta^2-4*beta^2*Q*Pi+4*beta^2*Q^2*Pi^2))^(1/2), ((-4*Pi^2-beta^2+4*beta^2*Q^2*Pi^2-8*I*Pi^2*beta*Q)/(4*Pi^2+beta^2-4*beta^2*Q*Pi+4*beta^2*Q^2*Pi^2))^(1/2), -((-4*Pi^2-beta^2+4*beta^2*Q^2*Pi^2-8*I*Pi^2*beta*Q)/(4*Pi^2+beta^2-4*beta^2*Q*Pi+4*beta^2*Q^2*Pi^2))^(1/2)];

how do I select only the elements with positive imaginary part? I want to end up with a list that has only the elements with positive imaginary part in it. I tried as follows but to no avail. Please advise.

remove(has,t1,Im(op(t1))<0);
