    Find the values of:

    i^(Sqrt(3))

    The answer is:

    cos(pi*sqrt(3)[1/2+2k]) + i.sin(pi*sqrt(3)[1/2+2k]), for any integer k.

    Solution Preview

    this is a neat application of de moivre's formula; indeed, this should remind you of how to extract roots of complex numbers! as a first step you would need to write the base of the exponent in polar form, so

    i = 0 + 1i = cos (pi/2) + i sin (pi/2)

    but the effect of ...
