Definitions

General

The natural logarithm of a number x, is a power p so that ep= x, where e is a mathematical constant, approximately equal to 2.718. In modern notation natural logarithm is written as \ln{x}or \log_{e}{x}. Any positive real number has a natural logarithm. The natural logarithm of 1 is 0, while the natural logarithm of 0 approaches negative infinity.

The graph of the natural logarithm function is shown in the figure below. It is a monotonic function.

Properties

The derivative of the natural logarithm function is:

\left(\ln x\right)' = \frac{1}{x}

The integral of the natural logarithm function is given by:

\int \ln x\, \mathrm{d}x = x\ln{x}-x +C
