# Different definitions of logarithm: Index

I’m doing something that I should have done a long time ago: collect past series of posts into a single, easy-to-reference post. The following posts formed my series on how the different definitions of logarithm are in fact equivalent.

Part 1: Introduction to the two definitions: an antiderivative and an inverse function.

Part 2: The main theorem: four statements only satisfied by the logarithmic function.

Part 3: Case 1 of the proof: positive integers.

Part 4: Case 2 of the proof: positive rational numbers.

Part 5: Case 3 of the proof: negative rational numbers.

Part 6: Case 4 of the proof: irrational numbers.

Part 7: Showing that the function $f(x) = \displaystyle \int_1^x \frac{dt}{t}$ satisfies the four statements.

Part 8: Computation of standard integrals and derivatives involving logarithmic and exponential functions.
