Math.expm1

The Math.expm1() function returns ex - 1, where x is the argument, and e the base of the natural logarithms.

Syntax

Math.expm1(x)

Parameters

x
A number.

Return value

A number representing ex - 1, where e is Euler's number and x is the argument.

Description

Because expm1() is a static method of Math, you always use it as Math.expm1(), rather than as a method of a Math object you created (Math is not a constructor).

Examples

Using Math.expm1()

Math.expm1(-1); // -0.6321205588285577 
Math.expm1(0);  // 0
Math.expm1(1);  // 1.718281828459045

Polyfill

This can be emulated with the help of the Math.exp() function:

Math.expm1 = Math.expm1 || function(x) {
  return Math.exp(x) - 1;
};
