Function Power(x, y)

# Power

Power(
x,      ! (input) numerical expression
y       ! (input) numerical expression
)


## Arguments

x

A scalar numerical expression.

y

A scalar numerical expression.

## Return Value

The function Power returns $$x$$ raised to the power $$y$$.

Note

• The following combination of arguments is allowed:

• $$x > 0$$

• $$x = 0$$ and $$y > 0$$

• $$x < 0$$ and $$y$$ integer

In all other cases a run-time error will result.

• The function can be used in constraints of nonlinear mathematical programs.

The functions Cube, Sqr, and Sqrt. Arithmetic functions are discussed in full detail in Arithmetic Functions of the Language Reference.
