  • MatrixExp[ mat ] gives the matrix exponential of mat.
  • MatrixExp[ mat ] effectively evaluates the power series for the exponential function, with ordinary powers replaced by matrix powers.
  • MatrixExp works only on square matrices.
  • See the Mathematica book: Section 3.7.7.
  • See also: MatrixPower, Dot, JordanDecomposition, QRDecomposition.
