    Create an iterator which iteratively computes the base b logarithm.


    npm install @stdlib/math-iter-special-log


    var iterLog = require( '@stdlib/math-iter-special-log' );

    iterLog( x, b )

    Returns an iterator which iteratively computes the base b logarithm of x.

    var array2iterator = require( '@stdlib/array-to-iterator' );
    var x = array2iterator( [ 2.0, 2.0, 10.0 ] );
    var y = array2iterator( [ 2.0, 6.0, 2.0 ] );
    var it = iterLog( x, y );
    // returns <Object>
    var r =;
    // returns 1.0
    r =;
    // returns ~0.3869
    r =;
    // returns ~3.3219
    // ...

    The returned iterator protocol-compliant object has the following properties:

    • next: function which returns an iterator protocol-compliant object containing the next iterated value (if one exists) assigned to a value property and a done property having a boolean value indicating whether the iterator is finished.
    • return: function which closes an iterator and returns a single (optional) argument in an iterator protocol-compliant object.

    If provided a numeric value as an iterator argument, the value is broadcast as an infinite iterator which always returns the provided value.

    var array2iterator = require( '@stdlib/array-to-iterator' );
    var x = array2iterator( [ 2.0, 6.0 ] );
    var it = iterLog( x, 2.0 );
    // returns <Object>
    var v =;
    // returns 1.0
    v =;
    // returns ~2.58496
    var bool =;
    // returns true


    • For negative b or x iterated values, the returned iterator returns NaN.
    • If an iterated value is non-numeric (including NaN), the returned iterator returns NaN. If non-numeric iterated values are possible, you are advised to provide an iterator which type checks and handles non-numeric values accordingly.
    • The length of the returned iterator is equal to the length of the shortest provided iterator. In other words, the returned iterator ends once one of the provided iterators ends.
    • If an environment supports Symbol.iterator and a provided iterator is iterable, the returned iterator is iterable.


    var uniform = require( '@stdlib/random-iter-uniform' );
    var iterLog = require( '@stdlib/math-iter-special-log' );
    // Create seeded iterators for generating pseudorandom numbers:
    var x = uniform( 0.0, 100.0, {
        'seed': 1234,
        'iter': 10
    var y = uniform( 0.0, 10.0, {
        'seed': 4567,
        'iter': 10
    // Create an iterator which consumes the pseudorandom number iterators:
    var it = iterLog( x, y );
    // Perform manual iteration...
    var r;
    while ( true ) {
        r =;
        if ( r.done ) {
        console.log( r.value );
