Matrix help

  1. Jun 10, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Given matrix M=
    0 1
    1 0

    Find exp[iMθ] where θ is a constant.

    2. Relevant equations
    3. The attempt at a solution

    Should I proceed in the following way?

    cos Mθ+i sin Mθ=expansion of exp[iMθ]

    Then to collect real and imaginary parts from the expansion???

    That sounds like a good idea.
