U+2149 was added to Unicode in version 3.2 (2002). It belongs to the block Letterlike Symbols in the Basic Multilingual Plane.

This character is a Lowercase Letter and is commonly used, that is, in no specific script.

The glyph is a Font composition of the glyphs . It has a Neutral East Asian Width. In bidirectional context it acts as Left To Right and is not mirrored. The glyph can, under circumstances, be confused with 26 other glyphs. In text U+2149 behaves as Alphabetic regarding line breaks. It has type Lower for sentence and ALetter for word breaks. The Grapheme Cluster Break is Any.

The Wikipedia has the following information about this codepoint:

The term

imaginary unitorunit imaginary numberrefers to a solution to the equationx^{2}= −1. As a convention, the solution is usually denotedi. Since there is no real number with this property, it extends the real numbers, and under the assumption that the familiar properties of addition and multiplication (namely closure, associativity, commutativity and distributivity) continue to hold for this extension, the complex number system is generated by including it.Imaginary numbers are an important mathematical concept, which extends the real number system ℝ to the complex number system ℂ, which in turn provides at least one root for every nonconstant polynomial

P(x) (see Algebraic closure and Fundamental theorem of algebra). The term "imaginary" is used because there is no real number having a negative square.There are two complex square roots of −1, namely

iand −i, just as there are two complex square roots of every real number other than zero, which has one double square root.In contexts where i is ambiguous or problematic, j or the Greek

ιis sometimes used (see § Alternative notations). In the disciplines of electrical engineering and control systems engineering, the imaginary unit is often denoted by j instead of i, because i is commonly used to denote electric current.For the history of the imaginary unit, see Complex number § History.
