Java Math exp() method with Example

The java.lang.Math.exp() returns euler’s number e raised to the power of a double value.

  • If the argument is NaN, the result is NaN.
  • If the argument is positive infinity, then the result is positive infinity.
  • If the argument is negative infinity, then the result is positive zero.

Syntax :

public static double exp(double a)
Parameter : 
a : the exponent part which raises to e. 

Returns :
the value ea, where e is the base of the natural logarithms.
