1. This is not what I am asking. Rather, it is: If you have a not-zero integer (1, 2, 3,. . . or -1, -2, -3,. . .), how do you raise it to a complex power. If I want to raise the postive integer 2 to the complex number power 2 + 2i, how do I do it?

2 Also, I realize that I am also asking that if you have a non-zero rational number (i.e., a fraction) how do you raise the divisor to a complex power. This is basically the same as No. 1 above.
