How do I get the exponent of exponential function?

The exponential function is f(x) = ex. The Math.getExponent() method is used to get the x value of the given parameter, in which the parameter is a result of exponential function calculation.

package org.kodejava.example.math;

public class GetExponent {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        double fx = 1.0d;
        float fx1 = 1.0f;

        int x = Math.getExponent(fx);
        System.out.println("Exponent  = " + x);

        // argument in float
        int xf = Math.getExponent(fx1);
        System.out.println("Exponent1 = " + xf);
    }
}

How do I get signum function of a number?

The code below show you how to get the signum function of a number using the Math.signum() static method call. This method extracts the sign of a real number. If you have a number of x the signum function of x is -1 if x < 0; 0 if x = 0 and 1 if x > 0.

package org.kodejava.example.math;

public class SignumExample {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        Double zero = 0.0D;
        Double negative = -25.0D;
        Double positive = 15.0D;

        // Get the signum function of value of a number.
        // It returns:
        // * 0 if the value is zero.
        // * 1.0 if value is greater than zero.
        // * -1.0 if value is less than zero.
        double sign1 = Math.signum(zero);
        double sign2 = Math.signum(negative);
        double sign3 = Math.signum(positive);

        // For floating-point value
        float sign4 = Math.signum(zero.floatValue());
        float sign5 = Math.signum(negative.floatValue());
        float sign6 = Math.signum(positive.floatValue());

        System.out.println("In double:");
        System.out.println("Signum of " + zero + " is " + sign1);
        System.out.println("Signum of " + negative + " is " + sign2);
        System.out.println("Signum of " + positive + " is " + sign3);

        System.out.println("In float:");
        System.out.println("Signum of " + zero + " is " + sign4);
        System.out.println("Signum of " + negative + " is " + sign5);
        System.out.println("Signum of " + positive + " is " + sign6);
    }
}

Here is the output of the program:

In double:
Signum of 0.0 is 0.0
Signum of -25.0 is -1.0
Signum of 15.0 is 1.0
In float:
Signum of 0.0 is 0.0
Signum of -25.0 is -1.0
Signum of 15.0 is 1.0
