Compute Generalized Logarithm

The functions compute the generalized logarithm, which is more or less identical to the area hyperbolic sine, and their inverse; see details.

Keywords
univar
Usage
glog(x, base = exp(1))
glog10(x)
glog2(x)
inv.glog(x, base = exp(1))
inv.glog10(x)
inv.glog2(x)
Arguments
x

a numeric or complex vector.

base

a positive or a positive or complex number: the base with respect to which logarithms are computed. Defaults to e=exp(1).

Details

The function computes $$\log(x + \sqrt{x^2 + 1}) - \log(2)$$ where the first part corresponds to the area hyperbolic sine. Subtracting log(2) makes the function asymptotically identical to the logarithm.

Value

A vector of the same length as x containing the transformed values.
