Y = exp(X)



Y = exp(X) returns the exponential ex for each element in array X. For complex elements z = x + iy, it returns the complex exponential


Use expm to compute a matrix exponential.


collapse all

Calculate the exponential of 1, which is Euler's number, e.

ans = 2.7183

Euler's identity is the equality eiπ+1=0.

Compute the value of eiπ.

Y = exp(1i*pi)
Y = -1.0000 + 0.0000i

Plot y=ex/2 for x values in the range [-2,10].

X = -2:0.5:10;
Y = exp(X/2);

Input Arguments

collapse all

Input array, specified as a scalar, vector, matrix, or multidimensional array.

Data Types: single | double
Complex Number Support: Yes

Output Arguments

collapse all

Exponential values, returned as a scalar, vector, matrix, or multidimensional array.

For real values of X in the interval (-Inf, Inf), Y is in the interval (0,Inf). For complex values of X, Y is complex. The data type of Y is the same as that of X.
