I have a basic question, could not figure it out. I have an equation:

g[t_, \[Theta]_] := (-Log[t])^\[Theta]

and when it for: g[1, \[Theta]]

it gives me 0^\[Theta].

My question is how can it simplify and just say it is equal to 0. As later I need to find few partial derivatives and when i do that there are expresions containing many products with zero (which should be simply equal to zero), but it does not consider that. Thanks.
