From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This article is about the exponential map in differential geometry. For discrete dynamical systems, see Exponential map (discrete dynamical systems).
- exponential map (Riemannian geometry) for a manifold with a Riemannian metric,
- exponential map (Lie theory) from a Lie algebra to a Lie group,
- More generally, in a manifold with an affine connection, , where is a geodesic with initial velocity X, is sometimes also called the exponential map. The above two are special cases of this with respect to appropriate affine connections.
- Euler's formula forming the unit circle in the complex plane.
