    Hi there:
    I am looking for approximate expressions for the two functions: ln(x) and 1/ln(x) . Any help?
    Thanks in advance.

    Approximations where, for what? Did you try Taylor expansions?

    ln(x) is not analytic at x=0. You need to use a series around some other value. If you use the series for ln((1+x)/(1-x)) you will able to get a series for any y=(1+x)/(1-x) for -1<x<1.
