Shouldn't this article redirect to logrithm, since ln is just loge? Granted, the natural logrithm is very useful, but it is still just a logrithm.
A logrithm? What's that? Is that the faint distant drum you hear when you put your ear real closed to a log? :-) But seriously, the natural logarithm is not "just a logarithm"; it has many special properties that other logarithms don't have and is the source of the definition of e. That warrants a separate article. -- JanHidders
