(pow, ^)

A power is an operation involving two numbers: a base value and an exponent value. The operation corresponds to a multiplication of the base by its own value the number of times represented by the exponent value. Calcute implements powers with function *pow* which takes two parameters. This function is equivalent to using the *^* operator.
