exp function

exp(X)

Returns e (the base of natural logarithms) to the power X

**Input**: numeric, or an array of numeric values

**Result**: numeric, or an array of numeric values

**Example**:

The exponential growth of a population is given by the formula

N_{t} = N_{0}e^{r.t}

where:

N_{t} is the population size at time t,

N_{0} is the initial population size,

e is the base of natural logarithms,

r is the intrinsic growth rate, and

t is current time

We can represent this in Simile using a single variable (called N), with its equation being

N = 10*exp(0.1*time(1))

assuming that the initial population size = 10 and the value of r is 0.1.
