exp - The Exponential Function

Calling Sequence

exp(x)

Parameters

x

Description

• 

The exponential function, exp(x), calculates the value of e to the power of x, where e is the base of the natural logarithm, 2.718281828... .

• 

You can enter the command exp using either the 1-D or 2-D calling sequence. For example, exp(-1) is equivalent to ⅇ1. Note that the 2-D calling sequence can only be entered by using the palettes or command completion.

• 

E is no longer reserved in Maple.  exp(1) is used instead.

In 2-D math notation, it is important to use the expression palette to enter the exponential function, because Maple does not recognize that the letter "e" is the exponential function.
