MatrixPower

Updated In 6 Graphic
MatrixPower[m, n]
gives the n^(th) matrix power of the matrix m.
MatrixPower[m, n, v]
gives the n^(th) matrix power of the matrix m applied to the vector v.
  • MatrixPower[m, n] effectively evaluates the product of a matrix with itself n times.
  • When n is negative, MatrixPower finds powers of the inverse of the matrix m.  »
