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 outofcontext 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.
 Jim
