2. ### Exponential growth - Wikipedia

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exponential_growth

Exponential growth is a process that increases quantity over time at an ever-increasing rate. It occurs when the instantaneous rate of change (that is, the derivative) of a quantity with respect to time is proportional to the quantity itself. Described as a function, a quantity undergoing exponential growth is an exponential function of time ...

3. ### Exponential decay - Wikipedia

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exponential_decay

Exponential decay. A quantity undergoing exponential decay. Larger decay constants make the quantity vanish much more rapidly. This plot shows decay for decay constant ( λ) of 25, 5, 1, 1/5, and 1/25 for x from 0 to 5. A quantity is subject to exponential decay if it decreases at a rate proportional to its current value.

4. ### Exponential function - Wikipedia

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exponential_function

Exponential functions with bases 2 and 1/2. The exponential function is a mathematical function denoted by () = ⁡ or (where the argument x is written as an exponent).Unless otherwise specified, the term generally refers to the positive-valued function of a real variable, although it can be extended to the complex numbers or generalized to other mathematical objects like matrices or Lie algebras.

5. ### Natural logarithm - Wikipedia

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Natural_logarithm

The natural logarithm of a number is its logarithm to the base of the mathematical constant e, which is an irrational and transcendental number approximately equal to 2.718 281 828 459. [1] The natural logarithm of x is generally written as ln x, loge x, or sometimes, if the base e is implicit, simply log x.

6. ### Logistic function - Wikipedia

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Logistic_function

A logistic function or logistic curve is a common S-shaped curve ( sigmoid curve) with the equation. where. , the value of the function's midpoint; , the supremum of the values of the function; , the logistic growth rate or steepness of the curve. [1] Standard logistic function where. For values of in the domain of real numbers from to , the S ...

7. ### Geometric progression - Wikipedia

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geometric_progression

greater than 1, there will be exponential growth towards positive or negative infinity (depending on the sign of the initial term). 1, the progression is a constant sequence. between −1 and 1 but not zero, there will be exponential decay towards zero (→ 0). −1, the absolute value of each term in the sequence is constant and terms ...

8. ### Euler's formula - Wikipedia

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Euler's_formula

t. e. Euler's formula, named after Leonhard Euler, is a mathematical formula in complex analysis that establishes the fundamental relationship between the trigonometric functions and the complex exponential function. Euler's formula states that, for any real number x, one has. where e is the base of the natural logarithm, i is the imaginary ...
