Series for log_2(x)?

  1. Mar 29, 2009 #1
    Hello all,

    I am aware that we can write ln(x) as a series.
    But what can we say for a logarithm of an arbitrary base?

    Can we write for example log_2(x) as series?

    Thanks in advance..

    Remember that the logarithm in base b of a number is just a constant multiple of the natural logarithm of the number, specifically: logb(x) = ln(x)/ln(b).
