// Complex natural logarithm
//
// DESCRIPTION:
//
// Returns complex logarithm to the base e (2.718...) of
// the complex argument z.
//
// If
//       z = x + iy, r = sqrt( x**2 + y**2 ),
// then
//       w = log(r) + i arctan(y/x).
//
// The arctangent ranges from -PI to +PI.
//
// ACCURACY:
//
//                      Relative error:
// arithmetic   domain     # trials      peak         rms
//    DEC       -10,+10      7000       8.5e-17     1.9e-17
//    IEEE      -10,+10     30000       5.0e-15     1.1e-16
//
// Larger relative error can be observed for z near 1 +i0.
// In IEEE arithmetic the peak absolute error is 5.2e-16, rms
// absolute error 1.0e-16.

// Log returns the natural logarithm of x.
func Log(x complex128) complex128 {
return complex(math.Log(Abs(x)), Phase(x))
}

// Log10 returns the decimal logarithm of x.
func Log10(x complex128) complex128 {
return math.Log10E * Log(x)
}
