    no difference - they are synonyms

    since exponents can get pretty messy; the exp(...) notation is for clarity

    the of exp(..) as a similar notation to log(...)

    I have a book which defines exp(z) as \(e^x(cos y +isiny) \) where z=x+iy and it defines \(e^z~as~exp(z~Log~e)\) where Log is used to denote the multivalued Logarithmic function

    is Log e = 1?

    \(Logz=e^{logr}+i\theta +2ni\pi\) where \(z=r(cos\theta+isin\theta)\)

    So Log e is a multivalued function. It has an infinite number of values and 1 is one of the values it takes.

    actually as i recall the notation Log is single values whereas log is multivalued, but i could be wrong

    Yes, right, that is why I mentioned it

    So as to avoid any confusion. @satellite73 you are right, but some books write it the other way round.

    \[\log(z)=\ln(|z|)+i\theta\] for any \(\theta\) whereas \[Log(z)=\ln(|x|)+i\theta\] for \[-\pi\leq\theta\leq\pi\]
