I don't have a full answer for you, but
$\displaystyle |i^x| = \left | \left ( e^{i \pi / 2} \right )^x \right | = \left | e^{ix \pi / 2} \right | = 1$

I believe that $\displaystyle \left | x^i \right | = e^{arg(x)} = 1$, given that x is real. That's what I recall but someone is going to have to check that for me. W|A agrees but doesn't provide a derivation. Note that there is a problem with x = 0... arg(0) is not defined.

Hello,

It is obvious that for $\displaystyle x=0$ we can not calculate...
What values can take that amount for $\displaystyle x\neq 0$?
Thank you very much!

All the best!

Well, if I got the |x^i| right then |x^i| + |i^x| = 1 + 1 = 2.

Your answer is valid for any $\displaystyle x\in \mathbb R$?If $\displaystyle x=-1$ , then $\displaystyle |x^i|+|i^x|=?$
Thank you very much!

All the best,

It's still 2. (But like I said someone needs to double-check my formula.)

Hello,

No offense , but I do not understand!$\displaystyle 0^i$ is defined?What value has $\displaystyle 0^i$?I say that calcul of the sum $\displaystyle |x^i|+|i^x|$ can not be done for $\displaystyle x=0$...
Thank you very much!

All the best,

Integrator
