Overly complicated reductions?
Consider f(x)=e^(-2x) I wanted to retreive the inverse function f^-1(x), Mathematica to the rescue: \!\(Reduce[y == E\^\(\(-2\) x\), x]\) \!\(C \[Element] Integers && y != 0 && x == 1\/2\ \((2\ \[ImaginaryI]\ \[Pi]\ C + Log[1\/y])\)\) This can't be right, I can rearrange it to just Ln(x)/-2 on paper. What did I do wrong? Thanks
