Make the following replacement: $F(B) = e^{At}$ and $A=B$.

Make the following replacement: $F(B) = e^{At}$ and $A=B$.
ok if I replace F(B) = e^At then should it be [A,B](e^At)' ? how does the t come from? and what do you mean by A=B? also the order of commutator seems reversed shouldnt it be negative then?
Sorry I am stupid.

$(e^{At})' = \frac{d}{dA}e^{At}$.

Yes, the order is reversed on both sides of the equation. So there will be negative sign in each side and they can cancel out.

oh I didn't pay attention on the order of the commutator on the right hand side. Thank you so much for the help and time. And sorry for bothering you again.
