Natural exponential function

The natural exponential function has the base e and is written as

f (x) = ex = exp (x)

 


Explanation

Exponential functions play a central role in mathematics. The number e, the basis of the natural logarithm, has to do with that. Because of this, the constant is abbrieviated by the letter e - from exponent.

 


Example 1

Logarithms can be written as

ln ez = z      or    ln (exp z) = z

az = ez ln a   or    az = exp (z lna)
