A Fast Logarithm Algorithm.zip
- Chuck Mire
While researching using the Internet on the different algorithms used for calculating logarithms, I found an article in PDF form that gave an extremely fast binary [number base 2] algorithm. It was intriguing because it only used the four basic functions of math - addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. I experimented and found out that with minimal modifications the algorithm could be modified to calculate logarithms in any number base. The results appear to be quite accurate to many decimal places. The attached zip file contains the Windows executable, the source code and a PDF with the link to the online PDF, the original algorithm, my modifications [in pseudo code] which allow for easy transcription into any computer coding language, and screen shots of my program.
