RE: Square Roots of Complex Numbers (CAS)
Yes, exactly! We're on the same page.
And look at sqrt(2^i) > sqrt(2^i), so that is what I would expect from a CAS. Now that symbolic expression can be used again in subsequent symbolic manipulations, whereas the forced, numerical output from sqrt(1+i) is worthless (in a symbolic reuse sense).
