How do I make a plot involving imaginary numbers? I want to make a plot of x^1.1 (x^1.1=(x^1)*(x^1/10)=(x^1)*(tenth root of x), which is even; negative numbers will be imaginary)when x<0; I tried using Table to generate some values and then using ListPlot, but it didn't like the imaginary numbers. I suppose I could pull out the "i"s by hand and plug the imaginary numbers into ListPlot, but there's got to be an easier way. I would prefer not to use ArgColors.
Also, I can't seem to convince the program that the cube root of 8 is 2. It gives me 2*(1^1/3); I tried putting parentheses around the 8, and I also tried using Hold[8] within the root tool on the palette, but that didn't work either. Thanks!
