Thanks, Oleksandr.

Unfortunately my z[u] spirals around the origin
in the complex z-plane. So purely imaginary values are common.
Here is a somewhat simplified example.
Look at a parametric plot from u = 0 to u=10 for this z[u]:

z[u] = f[u]/f,  where

f[u] = E^(20 (Sqrt[1/4 +  (1 - rho^2) u^2 +  I (rho - 1) u] - Sqrt[1-rho^2]
u ) ),

with say rho = -0.8.

Any suggestions for this type of spiraling z[u]?

regards,
alan
