Re: Expansion of an exponential expression


anlog=Log[((2+Sqrt[1+2*h])^(-1))^(t/h)];

PowerExpand[anlog]

Simplify[anlog, Element[t, Reals]&&h>0]

Simplify[anlog, h>0&&t>0]

anlog= Log[ ((2 + Sqrt[1 + 2*h])^(-1))^(t/h)   ]

I would like to simplify this to 

anlog= (t/h) Log[((2 + Sqrt[1 + 2*h])^(-1))   ]

so I can then take the Taylor series in h.
But FullSimplify[anlog,h>0]  doesnt do it.
Do i need a ComplexityFunction?
