Complex analysis

  1. Nov 6, 2011 #1
    I have a homework question:
    Find (1 − [itex]\sqrt{3}[/itex] i)1−i and P((1 − [itex]\sqrt{3}[/itex] i)1−i).

    I dont know what does the P stand for, And i cant find it in the textbook either.

    Welcome to PF, nickolas2730! :smile:

    I have no clue what P stands for either.
    I dare to say it is not a standard mathematical operator or function.
    So you'll have to find it in your notes or else.

    P ((1 −√3i)1−i) = e(1−i)Log(1−√3i)
    = e(1−i)(ln 2− ∏/3 i)
    = eln 2−∏/3 e−(ln 2+∏/3)i

    This is just the evaluation of the expression.
    Without P() it would say exactly the same.
