Java Math expm1() method with Example


The java.lang.Math.expm1() returns ex -1. Note that for values of x near 0, the exact sum of expm1(x) + 1 is much closer to the true result of ex than exp(x).

  • 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 -1.0.
  • If the argument is zero, then the result is a zero with the same sign as the argument.

Syntax:

public static double expm1(double x) 
Parameter: 
x-the exponent part which raises to e. 

Returns:
The method returns the value ex-1, where e is the base of the natural logarithms.

        // same sign as 0
