# Exponential

Exponential may refer to any of several mathematical topics related to exponentiation, including:

• Exponential function, also:
• Exponential decay, decrease at a rate proportional to value
• Exponential discounting, a specific form of the discount function, used in the analysis of choice over time
• Exponential growth, where the growth rate of a mathematical function is proportional to the function's current value
• Exponential map, in differential geometry
• Exponential notation, also known as scientific notation, or standard form
• Exponential object, in category theory
• Exponential time, in complexity theory
• in probability and statistics:
• Exponential distribution, a family of continuous probability distributions
• Exponential family, sometimes used in place of "exponential family"
• Exponential smoothing, a technique that can be applied to time series data
• Exponential type or function type, in type theory
• Topics listed at list of exponential topics

Exponential may also refer to:

• Exponential Technology, a vendor of PowerPC microprocessors
