    imaginary roots?

    what is the square root of "-i"? that is, not -1, but -i

    if this is not the correct forum to ask this question, which forum or other internet site should I go to?

    I would be very appreciative of any suggestion, help.

    Re: question

    Once you learn about polar complex representation, this will not be hard for you to compute.

    The square root of -i is 1/sqrt(2)*[-1 + i]
