**What is the limit of exp(-kM/T)?**

Let M be a matrix:

[tex]\left(\begin{array}{cc}a & b \\c & d\end{array}\right)[/tex]

where a,b,c and d are complex constants. Let k and T be positive real numbers. Is there a closed formula for this limit?

[tex]\begin{array}{c}\lim \\ T->0^{+}\end{array} \;\;\;

e^{-kM/T}[/tex]

Of course the answer will not depend on k, or T.
