### Re: [Fis] If always n>0 why we need log

I am in agreement with Guy Hoelzer in his assessment of the use of log-transformed data. Since I regularly deal with biological growth processes, using log-transformed data is the clearest way to anaylyze proportional relationships in nonlinear sysrtems. By virtue of the way it compresses

### Re: [Fis] If always n>0 why we need log

Dear Sung et al., I appreciate human bias in terms of numerical scale, but I donâ€™t think that is what we actually achieve by using logarithms. If the universe of possibility is fractal, using a logarithm does not eliminate the problem of large numbers. I think the primary outcome achieved by

Sorry Sung, you know about the rules of engagement in this list... you have gone to 5 msgs. And that means one and half weeks of sanction. Even more after having warned you privately several times. Anyhow, tomorrow I will make public an embarrassing bureaucratic procedure that the list has to

### Re: [Fis] If always n>0 why we need log

Hi Krassimir, I think the main reason that we express 'information' as a logarithmic function of the number of choices available, n, may be because the human brain finds it easier to remember (and communicate and reason with) 10 than 100, or 100 than 10. . . . 0, etc.

### [Fis] If always n>0 why we need log

Dear Sung, A simple question: If always n>0 why we need log in I = -log_2(m/n) = - log_2 (m) + log_2(n) (1) Friendly greetings Krassimir ___ Fis mailing list Fis@listas.unizar.es http://listas.unizar.es/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/fis
