Function expm #

Compute the matrix exponential, expm(A) = e^A. The matrix must be square. Not to be confused with exp(a), which performs element-wise exponentiation.

The exponential is calculated using the Padé approximant with scaling and squaring; see “Nineteen Dubious Ways to Compute the Exponential of a Matrix,” by Moler and Van Loan.
