Lets reword the problem. Zero to the zero power is the same as zero
multiplied by zero, zero times. In a rational number system, zero multiplied
by any other rational number is zero. Also zero multiplied by any number
zero times is still zero. But I think the original question was what is zero
log zero (or zero ln zero), which is one. And zero times one is zero :>)
