MatrixExp

MatrixExp[m]
gives the matrix exponential of m.

MatrixExp[m, v]
gives the matrix exponential of m applied to the vector v.

Details and OptionsDetails and Options

  • MatrixExp[m] effectively evaluates the power series for the exponential function, with ordinary powers replaced by matrix powers.
  • MatrixExp works only on square matrices.
  • In MatrixExp[m, v] the matrix m can be a SparseArray object.
