 Characterizations of the exponential function - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In mathematics, the exponential function can be characterized in many ways.
For instance, when the value of the function is defined by a sequence or series, the convergence of this sequence or series needs to be established.
In this case, we define the natural logarithm function ln(x) first, and then define exp(x) as the inverse of the natural logarithm.

 Exponential and Logarithmic Equations
Some exponential equations can be solved by using the fact that exponential functions are one-to-one.
When solving exponential equations we frequently used logarithmic identity 1 because it involves applying a logarithmic function to "undo" the effect of an exponential function.
Since log is the logarithm base 10, we apply the exponential function base 10 to both sides of the equation.

 Exponential Functions: Introduction
Exponential functions look somewhat similar to functions you have seen before, in that they involve exponents, but there is a big difference, in that the variable is now the power, rather than the base.
This is the definition of exponential growth: that there is a consistent fixed period during which the function will double (or triple, or quadruple, etc; the point is that the change is always a fixed proportion).
Even though the exponential function may start out really, really small, it will eventually overtake the growth of the polynomial, since it doubles all the time.
