Unformatted text preview: Notes by David Groisser for MAS 4105, Copyright c 1998 Exponentials of Matrices. Suppose p is a polynomial of degree m : p ( x ) = b + b 1 x + ... + b m x m for some (real or complex) numbers b ,b 1 ,...,b m . For any n n square matrix A , we define the n n matrix p ( A ) by plugging in A for x : p ( A ) = b I + b 1 A + ... + b m A m where I is the n n identity matrix. To shorten the notation we define A = I and write p ( A ) = m k =0 b k A k . Example If p ( x ) = 1 + x 2 , and J =- 1 1 . then J 2 =- I , so p ( J ) = 0 0 0 0 . A Taylor series can be thought of as an infinite polynomial f ( x ) = k =0 b k x k . For any such series, and any n n matrix A , we can define f ( A ) = k =0 b k A k provided the series converges (i.e. if for each i and j , the series for the ( ij ) th entry of the series for f ( A ) converges). Note that in general f ( A ) is not the matrix whose ( ij ) th entry is f ( A ij ), so you must be careful with notation: ( f ( A...
