The domain of the natural logarithm of t, `lnt` , is the positive real numbers.


The range of the natural logarithm is all real numbers.


The graph:

From a calculus perspective, the natural logarithm is a continuous function (everywhere continuous on its domain) which is monotonically increasing (if a>b, then f(a)>f(b) for all a,b in the domain) since the first derivative is always positive.

Note that the mapping `t->lnt` is equivalent to `f(t)=lnt` .
