Java Math exp() method with Example

  • Last Updated : 06 Apr, 2018

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.

Example : To show working of java.lang.Math.exp() function




// Java program to demonstrate working
// of java.lang.Math.exp() method
import java.lang.Math;
  
class Gfg {
  
    // driver code
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
        double x = 3;
          
        // when both are not infinity
        double result = Math.exp(x);
        System.out.println(result);
  
        double positiveInfinity = 
               Double.POSITIVE_INFINITY;
        double negativeInfinity = 
               Double.NEGATIVE_INFINITY;
        double nan = Double.NaN;
  
        // when 1 is NAN
        result = Math.exp(nan);
        System.out.println(result);
  
        // when one argument is +INF
        result = Math.exp(positiveInfinity);
        System.out.println(result);
  
        result = Math.exp(negativeInfinity);
        System.out.println(result);
    }
}
Output:
20.085536923187668
NaN
Infinity
0.0
