Calculates the value of a number raised to a power. pow() can be used to raise a number to a fractional power. This is useful for generating exponential mapping of values or curves.
- base: the number. Allowed data types: float.
- exponent: the power to which the base is raised. Allowed data types: float.
- The result of the exponentiation. Data type: double.
