Hi,   i have the following problem: given a 3x3 real matrix, compute exp(A).   I need a really fast way to do this. I have searched a bit with  google, but it seems to me that  computing the matrix exponential is not so simple, at least if your  matrix does not have a special  structure (for example A=diagonal matrix).
Two procedures in PL/I are to be found at:
