Callisto
Group Title
Complex number.
For the exponential form of a complex number, \(a + bi = e^{\log \sqrt{a^2 + b^2} + i (tan^{1}\frac{b}{a})}\), why is it using common log, but not natural log or log with other base?

So, is it ln or log?

ln .. since in usually draw ... ln seems like in .. and one user mistook for lnt for int

\[a + bi = e^{\ln \sqrt{a^2 + b^2} + i (tan^{1}\frac{b}{a})}\]Put a = 0 and b = 1 into the formula. \[i = 0 + 1i \]\[= e^{\ln \sqrt{0^2 + 1^2} + i (tan^{1}\frac{1}{0})}\]\[=e^{\ln (1) + i (tan^{1}(undefined))}\]\[=e^{i (tan^{1}(undefined))}\]It doesn't seem right at all!

that would be pi/2

I know... but that would be \[=e^{\frac{i\pi}{2}}\]Something goes wrong here?!

Oh! \[i^i = (e^{\frac{i\pi}{2}})^{i}=(e^{\frac{i^2\pi}{2}})=e^{\frac{\pi}{2}}\] The problem was that I didn't know what I was doing!

*lost* If \(a + bi = e^{\log \sqrt{a^2 + b^2} + i (tan^{1}\frac{b}{a})}\) Then, \(\ln (a + bi) = \ln (e^{\log \sqrt{a^2 + b^2} + i (tan^{1}\frac{b}{a})})\) \(\ln (a + bi) = \log \sqrt{a^2 + b^2} + i (tan^{1}\frac{b}{a})\) ?! Looks strange enough to me :

basically ... dw:1345045135680:dw using this identity ... you can prove any trigonometric identity you did back in school. though redoing them again ... is crazy.

Never mind... I guess I'll spend some time redoing them again.. To see if I really understand! Thanks!
