In that case, bn is named" b raised to the n-th power"," b raised to the power of N"," the n-th power of b"," b to the N-th", or most briefly as" b to the n". exponentiation is used extensively in many fields, including economics, biology, chemistry, physics, and computer science, with applications such as compound interest, population increase, chemical reaction kinetics, wave behavior, and public-key cryptanalysis.
