3d}): Let A[a, b], 0 < a ≤ b, and the like denote the area under the curve over the interval; there holds A[a, b] = A[q a, q b] ,{2e, 3d} with whatever q > 0 (thus allowing the intervals to overlap). Now, take a = 1 and let L(x) ≔ A[1, x], x ≥ 1; then, with u, υ ≥ 1,{2d, 3e} L(u·υ) = A[1, u·υ ] = A[1, u] + A[u, u·υ ] = A[1, u] + A[1, υ ] = L(u) + L(υ), L(1) = A[1, 1] = 0 (1*) x 1 according to (1). (For 0 < x < 1 see {2d}. ) This accounts for the function L to be named the hyperbolic logarithm.

2). Mercator’s series became anticipated otherwise{4b}; in particular, Newton{2h} obtained x ∫ 0 1 1+ t dt = x ∞ ∫ 0 Σk=0 (–t)k dt = x Σ∞ (–1)k ∫ 0 t k dt k=0 = k x Σ∞ (–1)k−1 k , k=1 (3) afterwards being recognized as Saint-Vincent’s{2i} logarithm. {5d} The logarithmic series was to excel for its theoretical importance in analysis. In order to become a means of calculation it needed transformation. This new approach meant a great accomplishment{11e} since Napier and Briggs faced painstaking labor to improve upon their tables which had been constructed step by step with all the risk of error.

1, 2a} The Taylor series of such a function fr converges to fr (x) if –1 < x < 1. How about extending (3) to “f (x) = …” in general? We might ask like follows. Let a function f on ℝ have a Taylor series (3) that converges everywhere; would some neighborhood (x0 − δ, x0 + δ ) of x0 then exist where the values of (3) equal those of f (x)? The answer is no, being substantiated – a century later – by Cauchy’s famous counterexample{2b}: a function f, depicted on {2c}, with derivatives on ℝ of any order and a Taylor series about x0 = 0 which, though (trivially) convergent on all of ℝ, does not “function” in the sense that it does not converge to f (x) anywhere except for x = 0 (Appx.
