A3.1 Formulas for Special Functions

For tables of numeric values, see Appendix 5.

Exponential function ex (Fig. 545)

image

Natural logarithm (Fig. 546)

image

ln x is the inverse of ex, and elnx = x, e−ln x = eln (1/x) = 1/x.

Logarithm of base ten log10x or simply log x

image

log x is the inverse of 10x, and 10logx = x, 10−log x = 1/x.

Sine and cosine functions (Figs. 547, 548). In calculus, angles are measured in radians, so that sin x and cos x have period 2π.

sin x is odd, sin (−x) = −sin x, and cos x is even, cos (−x) = cos x.
