There are n nth roots to every complex number (except zero).(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

My question: How many "roots" are there when you take a complex number to an irrational or transcendental number. For that matter, how do we define raising a number to an irrational number? How do we define raising a number to a transcendental number?

Hmm....how is this defined? By a taylor series?
