Computing Multiple Integrals Involving Matrix Exponentials

William S. Bloomth
Lowell High School San Francisco, CA


In this paper, a generalization of a formula proposed by Van Loan [Computing integrals involving the matrix exponential, IEEE Trans. Automat. Control 23 (1978) 395–404] for the computation of multiple integrals of exponential matrices is introduced. In this way, the numerical evaluation of such integrals is reduced to the use of a conventional algorithm to compute matrix exponentials. The formula is applied for evaluating some kinds of integrals that frequently emerge in a number classical mathematical subjects in the framework of differential equations, numerical methods and control engineering applications.
