Question
Dear Prof Vijilant

Can we construct Logarithm and Antilogarithm tables of complex numbers?

Thanks
Prashant

Answer
Hello Prashant
I wonder when you last used tables.  They are a thing of the past.  It is perfectly possible, but would take a lot of paper.  You could put the real part horizontally and the imaginary part vertically.
Most statistical tables have two or even three parameters, but at least one is usually an integer.

I taught John Birt, former Director of the BBC in 1961. His homework book was the most perfect I have ever marked. And also the most neat. I could tell he was destined for great things. One of my classmates was the poet Roger McGough, and I have a mention in his autobiography.
