Summation of exponentials, as a multiplication of exponentials?

    Hello,

    Can we write a summation of exponentials, as a multiplication of exponentials?

    Regards

    Only like
    [tex]e^a e^b = e^{a + b}[/tex]

    There is no such rule as
    [tex]e^a + e^b = e^{a b}[/tex]
    or something like that.

    Best I can do is e^a + e^b = e^a * (1 + e^(b-a)).
