HI i want to minimize the absolute value of the following expression how ca= n i do this in methamatica [exp(pi/4) +exp(3*pi/4)*exp(jp)]+[exp(pi/4) *exp(-5*pi*/4)]+[exp(3*pi/4= )*exp(-3*pi*j/4)exp(jp)]+ [exp(pi/4) *exp(-10*pi*j/4)]+[exp(pi/4) *exp(-3*pi*j/2)exp(jp)]+[exp(pi= /4)*exp(-15*pi*j/4)]+ [exp(3*pi/4)*exp(-9*pi*j/4)exp(jp)] p is the unknown value ,and it represent the phase...which is other than 0 = .....is there any way to calculate it.
