It would be good if you could include the error text.

However, did you try putting the complex number in parens?
or assigning to a variable and then pass the variable into the call?
It may simply be that Python is interpreting it as


 or somesuch strangeness.

But I don't use SciPy so I can't check. An error text may help.
