\cdot even root: evenpositive=defined{^{even}}\sqrt{positive}=defined
i.e. 64=8\sqrt{64}=8
evennegative=undefined{^{even}}\sqrt{negative}=undefined
i.e. 64=undefined\sqrt{-64}=undefined

\cdot odd root: oddpositiveornegative=defined{^{odd}}\sqrt{positive\;or\;negative}=defined
i.e. 364=4{^3}\sqrt{64}=4
i.e. 364=4{^3}\sqrt{-64}=-4
