How can it be proved that:

-2*ln(i^i)=pi

?

Thanks in advance! :-)

\(i= cos(\frac{\pi}{2}) + isin(\frac{\pi}{2})\implies i=e^{i\frac{\pi}{2}}\implies i^i = (e^{i\frac{\pi}{2}})^{i} = e^{i^2\frac{\pi}{2}} = e^{-\frac{\pi}{2}}\)

Taking logarithm on both sides we get,

\(ln(i^i) = -\frac{\pi}{2}\)

So finally,
