# Complex.Pow Method

## Definition

Returns a specified complex number raised to a specified power.

 Pow(Complex, Double) Returns a specified complex number raised to a power specified by a double-precision floating-point number. Pow(Complex, Complex) Returns a specified complex number raised to a power specified by a complex number.

## Pow(Complex, Double)

Returns a specified complex number raised to a power specified by a double-precision floating-point number.

``````public:
static System::Numerics::Complex Pow(System::Numerics::Complex value, double power);``````
``public static System.Numerics.Complex Pow (System.Numerics.Complex value, double power);``
``static member Pow : System.Numerics.Complex * double -> System.Numerics.Complex``
``Public Shared Function Pow (value As Complex, power As Double) As Complex``

#### Parameters

value
Complex

A complex number to be raised to a power.

power
Double

A double-precision floating-point number that specifies a power.

#### Returns

Complex

The complex number `value` raised to the power `power`.

### Examples

The following example illustrates exponentiation using a complex number and an exponent whose value ranges from -1 to 10.

``````using System;
using System.Numerics;

public class Example
{
public static void Main()
{
Complex value = new Complex(12, -6);
for (int power = -1; power <= 10; power++)
Console.WriteLine("{0} ^ {1,2} = {2:N2}", value, power,
Complex.Pow(value, power));
}
}
// The example displays the following output:
//    (12, -6) ^ -1 = (0.07, 0.03)
//    (12, -6) ^  0 = (1.00, 0.00)
//    (12, -6) ^  1 = (12.00, -6.00)
//    (12, -6) ^  2 = (108.00, -144.00)
//    (12, -6) ^  3 = (432.00, -2,376.00)
//    (12, -6) ^  4 = (-9,072.00, -31,104.00)
//    (12, -6) ^  5 = (-295,488.00, -318,816.00)
//    (12, -6) ^  6 = (-5,458,752.00, -2,052,864.00)
//    (12, -6) ^  7 = (-77,822,208.00, 8,118,144.00)
//    (12, -6) ^  8 = (-885,157,632.00, 564,350,976.00)
//    (12, -6) ^  9 = (-7,235,785,728.00, 12,083,157,504.00)
//    (12, -6) ^ 10 = (-14,330,483,712.00, 188,412,604,416.00)

### Remarks

If `value` is Complex.Zero, the method returns Complex.Zero. For other values, if `power` is 0, the method returns Complex.One, and if `power` is 1, it returns `value`.

This method corresponds to the Math.Pow method for primitive numeric types.

## Pow(Complex, Complex)

Returns a specified complex number raised to a power specified by a complex number.

``````public:
static System::Numerics::Complex Pow(System::Numerics::Complex value, System::Numerics::Complex power);``````
``public static System.Numerics.Complex Pow (System.Numerics.Complex value, System.Numerics.Complex power);``
``static member Pow : System.Numerics.Complex * System.Numerics.Complex -> System.Numerics.Complex``
``Public Shared Function Pow (value As Complex, power As Complex) As Complex``

#### Parameters

value
Complex

A complex number to be raised to a power.

power
Complex

A complex number that specifies a power.

#### Returns

Complex

The complex number `value` raised to the power `power`.
