Logarithms are defined as the inverse of exponents.

The common features shared by all LNS inventions are single cycle operations (multiplication, division, squares, square roots), dynamic range and precision comparable to floating point, and minimal CPU silicon (if the

logarithm tables needed for addition and subtraction can be stored in external memory).

At the beginning of this school year, each student was assigned a 6-inch-thick binder jammed with pages of

logarithms and quantum mechanics.

For a given number, the idea is to find natural

logarithms repeatedly until the result lies between 1 and 0.

Shor's paper, "Polynomial-Time Algorithms for Prime Factorization and Discrete

Logarithms on a Quantum Computer," takes advantage of the counterintuitive principles of quantum mechanics to analyze a huge number of possible solutions simultaneously, far more than any conceivable computer that relies on today's integrated circuit technology.

Some specific topics covered include analysis and optimization of elliptic-curve single-scalar multiplication, subsequences of Sidelnikov sequences, Dickson polynomial permutations, and discrete

logarithms in curves over finite fields.

Why don't I understand Whitewater, Steve Forbes' flat-tax proposal, what our interests in Bosnia are or how

logarithms work?

Someone once proposed naming the unit of natural

logarithms (e = 2.

12, 1999--XLNS Research announced today that its preliminary market research indicates weak customer demand for arithmetic hardware and software based on

logarithms.

The math required is at the high school level up to exponents and

logarithms, for which reminders are provided.

The library also contains ultra fast multiplies, divisions, square roots, reciprocals,

logarithms, exponentials, powers, trig functions, inverse trig functions and other fast scientific and graphics functions.

Readers should have a working knowledge of electrical communication, algebra, trigonometry,

logarithms, and time distributions.
