# Is there an $n^{\text{th}}$ root function in Mathematica?
Is there a way to find $$\sqrt[n]{x}$$ with Mathematica beside of x^(1/n) as this is something different, because this is not always the same $$(-1)^{\frac{2}{4}}=i \neq 1= \sqrt[4]{(-1)^2}$$ In the help I only found Sqrt[x] which is the squareroot and CubeRoot[x] for the cubic root.
Is there a reason that there aren't $$n$$-th roots implemented? (Assuming they really don't exist and I am not to stupid to find them).
