Function for exponenting complex numbers

function exp(a, b, c, d)
	local r = math.sqrt(a^2+b^2)
	local theta = math.acos(a/r)
	local e = math.exp(1)
	local sin, cos = math.sin, math.cos
	local dlnr = d*math.log(r)
	local rcedTheta = r^c*e^(-d*theta)
	return {rcedTheta*(cos(c*theta)*cos(dlnr)-sin(c*theta)*sin(dlnr)), rcedTheta*(cos(c*theta)*sin(dlnr)+sin(c*theta)*cos(dlnr))}

Format: (a+bi)^(c+di)

What is this algorithm used for?

This is cool but why do we need complex number exponentiations in roblox lol

Would you be able to demonstrate the use of this algorithm with EditableImages, or some sort of image visualizer? It would be cool!

This is just a primitive mathematical function, he would need much more work in order to visualize fractals in roblox
