For algebraic convenience  will be substituted for (v) in functions other than in () which to simplify the algebra will be replaced later. It follows that,




Now, if x<1 (and  will always be much less than unity for all significant values of (Xg(n))), then loge (1+x)  is given by the series

                          Loge (1+x)  =
