Subject [jira] [Commented] (MATH-1358) Function object for "log1p(x) / x"
Date Mon, 25 Apr 2016 11:35:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MATH-1358?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15256231#comment-15256231

Rob Tompkins commented on MATH-1358:
------------------------------------

The sine function has the term "cardinal" associated with it when we actually perform 
{code:none}
cardinal sine (x) = sinc(x) = sin(x)/x
{code}
however, I don't seem to see any clearly defined analog, in a quick glance at the literature
, for the log function. Do you have any thoughts on what the name should be? Clearly first
intuition would be {{log1pc(x)}}, but that only follows from the {{sinc(x)}} naming convention
and isn't necessarily rooted in the literature.
