# .^

Element-wise matrix power operator.

## Syntax

R = x.^y

## Inputs

`x`- The base.
`y`- The exponent.

## Outputs

- R
- The power operation result.

## Example

Scalar raised to a scalar
power:

`R = 2 .^ 3`

`R = 8`

Matrix raised to a scalar power,
element-wise:

`R = [2, 3; 4, 5] .^ 2`

```
R = [Matrix] 2 x 2
4 9
16 25
```

Matrix raised to a matrix power,
element-wise:

`R = [2, 3; 4, 5] .^ [3, 2; 2, 1]`

```
R = [Matrix] 2 x 2
8 9
16 5
```
