Hello, I am fairly new here, so thank you in advance for your help. This is not a homework problem, just one of curiosity based on my limited knowledge of asymptotic expansions. I'm curious about how the function ln(x) or ln(1+x) behaves for large values of x. Plotting in Matlab, I see a linear behavior, but I am not certain as I cant seem to find an asymptotic expansion anywhere. Any help is appreciated, particularly with references.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
