StrictMath log1p() Method in Java
The java.lang.StrictMath.log1p() is an in-built method in Java which is used to accept a double value as argument and returns the natural logarithm of the sum of the argument and 1.
public static double log1p(double x)
Parameters: The function accepts a double value x as parameter and calculates the natural algorithm of (1+x).
Return Values: This method returns the value ln(1+x). The result of log1p(x) is almost as close as the actual result of ln(1 + x) for small values x than the floating-point evaluation of log(1.0+x).
Following cases are considered :
- The function returns positive infinity if the argument is positive infinity.
- The function returns negative infinity for negative infinity.
- The function returns NaN if the argument is NaN or less than -1.
- The function returns zero with the sign same as that of the argument if the argument is zero.
Input : 2018.0 Output : 7.610357618312838 Input : -4743.0 Output : NaN
