// Complex power function
//
// DESCRIPTION:
//
// Raises complex A to the complex Zth power.
// Definition is per AMS55 # 4.2.8,
// analytically equivalent to cpow(a,z) = cexp(z clog(a)).
//
// ACCURACY:
//
//                      Relative error:
// arithmetic   domain     # trials      peak         rms
//    IEEE      -10,+10     30000       9.4e-15     1.5e-15

// Pow returns x**y, the base-x exponential of y.
// For generalized compatibility with math.Pow:
//	Pow(0, ±0) returns 1+0i
//	Pow(0, c) for real(c)<0 returns Inf+0i if imag(c) is zero, otherwise Inf+Inf i.
