Tleko,

If you haven't achieved it yet, you are rapidly approaching an AP class
a**hole. If you quote someone, quote the whole thing! (the sentence of
above
with the ":" prefix, is an out-of-context statement of mine, the rest of
this
nonsense is his.) If you cannot grasp the main point in my
correspondence,
then let me make clearer:

1) These formulas you foaming about -ARE TECHNICALLY CORRECT-, but only
a
complete -MATHEMATICAL S***HEAD- would continue to post this crap.

2) Once again, look at at your, "we have" statement. Let's make sure you
see it this time.

----- ------ **
/ / ****
/ ===== / **
/ ===== /
/ /
----- ------

If you cannot or will not understand that this implies that Im(z) = 0,
and that
the rest of your, eh.. "developments", only serve to obscure this fact,
then
there is really no hope. You have had far more than your fair share of
help on this
problem from a number of people, and luckly, I wasn't one of them who
wasted
a lot of time with you on this.

Complete your last sentence, please,

> and x and y are real numbers, *** AND Y == 0 ***.

You can generate formulas for complex functions endlessly with your
"method".
You can plot them, and plot them, and plot them some more. But once you
have
announced Z=Z*, you've bought the farm pal. You CANNOT take these plots,
or formulas, or whatever you've got, and then make inferences about Z
off
of the real axis. These phoenix formulas that you seem to think have
mysteriously
arisen with profound mathematical consequences are in fact dead things.
They do NOT apply to the ORIGINAL problem.


DON'T EMAIL ME and DON'T MISQUOTE ME if you respond to this on the net.
And if you do this one more time, I'll be happy to furnish you
with quotable material.
