The exponential of a complex number is calculated by the equation:
See Wikipedia for further information on complex numbers.The Excel Imexp function returns the exponential of a supplied complex number.
The format of the function is:
where the inumber argument is the complex number that you want the exponential of.
Note that complex numbers are simply stored as text in Excel. When a text string in the format "a+bi" or "a+bj" is supplied to one of Excel's builtin complex number functions, this is interpreted as a complex number.
Also the complex number functions can accept a simple numeric value, as this is equivalent to a complex number whose imaginary coefficient is equal to 0.
Therefore, the inumber argument can be supplied to the Excel Imexp function as any of the following:
The spreadsheets below show four examples of the Imexp function:
Formulas:

Note that, in the above example spreadsheet:
Further information and examples of the Excel Imexp function can be found on the Microsoft Office website
If you get an error from the Excel Imexp Function, this is likely to be one of the following:
#NUM!    Occurs if the supplied inumber argument is not recognised as a complex number. 
#VALUE!    Occurs if the supplied inumber argument is a logical value.
