logNatural logarithm

Description

float log ( float $arg [, float $base = M_E ] )

If the optional base parameter is specified, log() returns logbase arg, otherwise log() returns the natural logarithm of arg.

Parameters

arg

The value to calculate the logarithm for

base

The optional logarithmic base to use (defaults to 'e' and so to the natural logarithm).

Return Values

The logarithm of arg to base, if given, or the natural logarithm.

Changelog

Version Description
4.3.0 The optional parameter base became available. For older versions you can calculate the logarithm in base b of a number n, but using the mathematical identity: logb(n) = log(n)/log(b), where log is the neperian (or natural) logarithm.
