AB - The paper is devoted to an algorithm for computing matrices $A^r$ and $(A^r -I).(A-I)^{-1}$ for a given square matrix $A$ and a real $r$. The algorithm uses the binary expansion of $r$ and has the logarithmic computational complexity with respect to $r$. The problem stems from the control theory.
