# numpy.exp¶

numpy.exp(x, /, out=None, *, where=True, casting='same_kind', order='K', dtype=None, subok=True[, signature, extobj]) = <ufunc 'exp'>

Calculate the exponential of all elements in the input array.

Parameters: x : array_like Input values. out : ndarray, None, or tuple of ndarray and None, optional A location into which the result is stored. If provided, it must have a shape that the inputs broadcast to. If not provided or None, a freshly-allocated array is returned. A tuple (possible only as a keyword argument) must have length equal to the number of outputs. where : array_like, optional Values of True indicate to calculate the ufunc at that position, values of False indicate to leave the value in the output alone. **kwargs For other keyword-only arguments, see the ufunc docs. out : ndarray or scalar Output array, element-wise exponential of x. This is a scalar if x is a scalar.

expm1
Calculate exp(x) - 1 for all elements in the array.
exp2
Calculate 2**x for all elements in the array.

Notes

The irrational number e is also known as Euler’s number. It is approximately 2.718281, and is the base of the natural logarithm, ln (this means that, if x = \ln y = \log_e y, then e^x = y. For real input, exp(x) is always positive.

For complex arguments, x = a + ib, we can write e^x = e^a e^{ib}. The first term, e^a, is already known (it is the real argument, described above). The second term, e^{ib}, is \cos b + i \sin b, a function with magnitude 1 and a periodic phase.

Examples

Plot the magnitude and phase of exp(x) in the complex plane:

>>> import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

>>> x = np.linspace(-2*np.pi, 2*np.pi, 100)
>>> xx = x + 1j * x[:, np.newaxis] # a + ib over complex plane
>>> out = np.exp(xx)

>>> plt.subplot(121)
>>> plt.imshow(np.abs(out),
...            extent=[-2*np.pi, 2*np.pi, -2*np.pi, 2*np.pi], cmap='gray')
>>> plt.title('Magnitude of exp(x)')

>>> plt.subplot(122)
>>> plt.imshow(np.angle(out),
...            extent=[-2*np.pi, 2*np.pi, -2*np.pi, 2*np.pi], cmap='hsv')
>>> plt.title('Phase (angle) of exp(x)')
>>> plt.show()
