Numpy exp() function

  • by

The numpy exp() function is used to calculate the exponential of an array or scalar value. It returns an array of the same shape as the input array, with each element replaced by its exponential value.

Numpy exp() function example

Simple example code.

import numpy as np
from matplotlib import pyplot as plt

# single element

# multiple elements of 1-d array
arr = [2, 5, 8]
res = np.exp(arr)

# 2-D numpy array elements
arr = np.array([[4, 6, 3, 7], [8, 5, 2, 9]])
res = np.exp(arr)

Use numpy.exp() function to the graphical representation

import numpy as np
from matplotlib import pyplot as plt

# Use numpy.exp() function to graphical representation
arr = [1, 1.4, 1.8, 2, 2.6, 3]
out_array = np.exp(arr)
arr2 = [1, 1.3, 1.6, 2.3, 2.8, 3]
plt.plot(arr, arr2, color='green', marker="*")

# Yellow for numpy.exp()
plt.plot(out_array, arr2, color='yellow', marker="o")

What exactly does numpy.exp() do?

Answer: The exponential function is e^x where e is a mathematical constant called Euler’s number, approximately 2.718281. This value has a close mathematical relationship with pi and the slope of the curve e^x is equal to its value at every point. np.exp() calculates e^x for each value of x in your input array.

exp(x) = e^x where e= 2.718281(approx)
