An algorithm for computing complex logarithms and exponentials is proposed. The algorithm is based on shift-and-add elementary steps, and it generalizes the Cordic algorithm. It can compute the usual real elementary functions. This algorithm is more suitable for computations in a redundant number system than Cordic, since there is no scaling factor for computation of trigonometric functions
