Computes the value of a number (x) raised to a specified power (y).

If x is not complex, it must be greater than zero unless y is an integer value. Otherwise, the result is not a number (NaN). If y is 0, x^y is 1 for all values of x, including 0.

x^y

Result of x to the power of y.

When x and y are complex, the following equation defines x^y:
x y = exp ( y * ln ( x ) )
