ComplexExpand (V4.0)

  • To: mathgroup at smc.vnet.net
  • Subject: [mg20318] ComplexExpand (V4.0)

	Why does ComplexExpand[Re[1/(x + I y)]]   return

	x/Abs[x+ I y]^2   

	rather then      	x/(x^2+y^2)

	The Mathematica manual says that ComplexExpand assumes that the
variables are real.

	thanks.   jerry blimbaum    NSWC  Panama City, Fl
