MatrixPower

FilledSmallSquare MatrixPower[mat, n] gives the n matrix power of mat.

FilledSmallSquare MatrixPower[mat, n] effectively evaluates the product of a matrix with itself n times.

FilledSmallSquare When n is negative, MatrixPower finds powers of the inverse of mat.

FilledSmallSquare MatrixPower works only on square matrices.

FilledSmallSquare MatrixPower can be used on SparseArray objects.

FilledSmallSquare See Section 3.7.7.

FilledSmallSquare See also: Dot, MatrixExp.
