paddle. exp ( x, name=None ) [source]

Computes exp of x element-wise with a natural number e as the base.

\[out = e^x\]
  • x (Tensor) – Input of Exp operator, an N-D Tensor, with data type int32, int64, float16, float32, float64, complex64 or complex128.

  • name (str, optional) – Name for the operation (optional, default is None). For more information, please refer to Name.


Tensor. Output of Exp operator, a Tensor with shape same as input.


>>> import paddle

>>> x = paddle.to_tensor([-0.4, -0.2, 0.1, 0.3])
>>> out = paddle.exp(x)
>>> print(out)
