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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[a + bi = e^{\ln \sqrt{a^2 + b^2} + i (tan^{1}\frac{b}{a})}\]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!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh! \[i^i = (e^{\frac{i\pi}{2}})^{i}=(e^{\frac{i^2\pi}{2}})=e^{\frac{\pi}{2}}\] The problem was that I didn't know what I was doing!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0*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 :

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3basically ... dw:1345045135680:dw using this identity ... you can prove any trigonometric identity you did back in school. though redoing them again ... is crazy.
