hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'd like to ask whether the function f:y=|ln(x)| (|| denotes the absolute value) is complex. I'm a little bit confused because it is defined also for negative numbers in reals. Is the "negative part" classified as a complex function even if it has no imaginary part ?

thanx
