Parameter theta of polar has the type of the template parameter. Therefore, it needs to change the default initial value to T(). The change of the declaration of this function in 24.5.1 [complex.syn] is accompanied by this change.

Proposed change:

template<class T> complex<T> polar(const T& rho, const T& theta = 0T());

Proposed resolution:

This wording is relative to N4659.

  1. Modify 24.5.1 [complex.syn], header <complex> synopsis, as indicated:

    template<class T> complex<T> polar(const T&, const T& = 0T());
    
  2. Modify 24.5.7 [complex.value.ops] as indicated:

    template<class T> complex<T> polar(const T& rho, const T& theta = 0T());
