exponential

[‚ek·spə′nen·chəl]
(mathematics)
For a bounded linear operator A on a Banach space, the sum of a series which is formally the exponential series in A.

exponential

(mathematics)
A function which raises some given constant (the "base") to the power of its argument. I.e.

f x = b^x

If no base is specified, e, the base of natural logarthims, is assumed.

These distributions have been studied by some authors in recent years, as for example, Mudholkar and Srivastava (1993) for exponentiated Weibull, Gupta and Kundu (1999) for exponentiated exponential, among others.

Later, Jiang presented two nonlinear companding techniques, namely exponential companding (EC) [16] and error companding (ErC) [18], to overcome the problem of increasing average power and to have efficient PAPR reduction.
The following section discusses weak exponentials, and describes a condition for when weak exponentials are given by tensor.
In [14], the autocorrelation function (ACF) of a wide-sense stationary (WSS) or short-range dependent process is modeled as a decaying exponential.
A biexponential fit deviates systematically from the experimental data, but a triexponential fit is sufficiently flexible to describe adequately the data; further exponentials result in ample uncertainties.
In their implementation, the first integral is roughly approximated by the left-rectangle numerical integration formula, and the matrix exponentials are computed by a Crank-Nicolson type method.
Prony method is a technique for modeling time series data as a linear combination of exponentials and it extends Fourier analysis.
and the subsequent developments of the concepts of geometry, the measure of time, mathematical operations (arithmetic, algebraic, exponentials etc.
It allows execution of calculations with very long numbers, displaying them correctly without incomprehensible exponentials.
so that frequencies are bounded by exponentials with different arguments, in contrast to equation (6).
In this case the rise and decay curves are explained with the help of multiple component exponentials.
