I'm puzzled by....(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]\ln \left( -\frac{1}{2} \right) = - \ln \left( 2 \right) + i \pi [/tex]

Why is this true? How can I possibly get this result?

I know that

[tex]\ln \left( \frac{1}{2} \right) = - \ln \left( 2 \right)[/tex].

Thank you so much
