in thread In PDL, how to raise a matrix $m to a power $v

This is really intriguing topic, and fondly brings back mathematical techniques that I probably haven't used in decades. What fun!


0 1 2 3
does give
2 3 6 11
and multiplying it again produces
6 11 22 39
(I'm sure there's a good reason why the top row of the cube has the same values as the bottom row of the square.) The module I suggested doesn't provide a power function, so I suppose the developer would have to jerry-rig something up that multiplies a matrix by itself n-1 times.
