John Napier of Merchiston (/ˈneɪpɪər/; – 4 April ) – also signed as Neper, Nepair – named Marvellous Merchiston, was a Scottish landowner known as a mathematician, physicist, and astronomer. He was the 8th Laird of Merchiston. John Napier is best known as the inventor of logarithms.4/5. Napier, J. (). A description of the admirable table of logarithmes with a declaration of the most plentifull, easie, and speedy use thereof in both kinds of trigonometry, as Author: Joel S. Silverberg.

A more detailed explanation, as well as the formula b m + n = b m · b n is contained in the article on exponentiation.. Definition. The logarithm of a positive real number x with respect to base b is the exponent by which b must be raised to yield coopsifas.com other words, the logarithm of x to base b is the solution y to the equation. John Napier () (from MacTutor History of Mathematics Archive) Napier first published his work on l ogarithms in under the title Mirifici logarithmorum canonis descriptio, which translates literally as A Description of the Wonderful Table of Logarithms.

John Davies of Hereford (? - July ) was an Anglo-Welsh poet. Davies, called "the Welsh Poet," was a writing-master. He wrote very copiously and rather tediously on theological and philosophical themes. His works include Mirum in Modum, Microcosmus (), The Picture of a Happy Man (), Wit's Bedlam (), and many epigrams on his contemporaries which have some historical interest. The history of logarithms is the story of a correspondence (in modern terms, a group isomorphism) between multiplication on the positive real numbers and addition on the real number line that was formalized in seventeenth century Europe and was widely used to simplify calculation until the advent of the digital computer.
