numpy.log1p() in Python

numpy.log1p(arr, out = None, *, where = True, casting = ‘same_kind’, order = ‘K’, dtype = None, ufunc ‘log1p’) :
This mathematical function helps user to calculate natural logarithmic value of x+1 where x belongs to all the input array elements.

  • log1p is reverse of exp(x) – 1.
  •  

    Parameters :

    array    : [array_like]Input array or object.
    out      : [ndarray, optional]Output array with same dimensions as 
                Input array, placed with result.
    **kwargs : allows you to pass keyword variable length of argument to a function. 
               It is used when we want to handle named argument in a function.
    where    : [array_like, optional]True value means to calculate the universal 
               functions(ufunc) at that position, False value means to leave the 
               value in the output alone.
    

    Return :

    An array with natural logarithmic value of x + 1; 
    where x belongs to all elements of input array.
