[R] computing functions with Euler's number (e^n)

I solved this in two ways:
1. "**" was necessary to raise (-dummy + 1) to the power of B.  "^" doesn't
work here, for some reason.
2. I needed to use "as.complex" which greatly simplified my code and
produces the correct response.  (I had to revisit math that I had not used
in many years.)

     W <- as.complex(((fq/cf[j])**B[j])*(exp(-(fq/cf[j])+1)**B[j]))
