hi cananybody tell me how to minimize the absolute value of the complex function exp(jP)+exp(2*pi/180j) where P is the unknown i have some clue regarding taking the Cos and Sin values but i dont know how to minimize the equations Re{exp(jP)}+Re{exp(2*pi/180j)}=0 Im{exp(jP)}+Im{exp(2*pi/180j)}=0 Thanx
