Exponential and Logarithmic Functions
The two simplest families of transcendental functions are those of exponential functions (of the form y = b^{x}) and their inverses - the logarithmic functions. The growth behavior of exponentials are compared with power functions and the use of exponential and logarithmic transformations on data are treated, as well as an application to compound interest.
