Logarithm
has a very widespread usage and importance in both the basic sciences and the
engineering fields. The logarithm was first described and used by the Scottish
mathematician John Napier (1550-1617) and published the definition, rules and
tables of the logarithm in his book "The Logarithmorum Canonis
Descriptio" in 1614. The logarithm defined by Napier is based on e (
In this study, irrational functions were
examined and an irrational function was proposed for the logarithm
calculations. The function has been suggested as a new logarithmic function,
completely different from the commonly used "curve fitting" concept.
The obtained results were compared with the logarithm values obtained by the
functions
