Putting this thing together[edit]

Someone (maybe me :-)) should take a look at the relationship between the log-log graph and power law sections. They got it goin' on man (or woman). So, of course, I think that semilog graphs should have the same wiki-relationship with exponential functions. Kevglynn 17:06, 1 November 2006 (UTC)


The sentence that begins "All the functions of the form" seems to contradict the illustrations. For example, the function y = x is of the form specified if one takes lambda to be 0 and gamma to be -1, and yet this is _not_ a straight line in either the log-lin or lin-log illustrations of semi-log (see the green curves, which are said to represent y = x ). 21:37, 25 February 2007 (UTC)

Move discussion in progress[edit]

There is a move discussion in progress on Talk:Log-log graph which affects this page. Please participate on that page and not in this talk page section. Thank you. —RM bot 21:46, 15 December 2010 (UTC)

Simplified Version[edit]

Page fits well with concept of Wiki Mathematics Project idea but I'm wondering if there should be a simplified version of these statistical pages - plain 'English' so to speak. Maybe a 'click here' for Dummies version. FridayFields (talk) 02:47, 17 April 2015 (UTC)
