The same function is called also "natural exponent" or "exponential to base \(\mathrm e\), in order to distinguish it from exponential to other base \(b\), denoted as
\(\exp_b(z)=b^z=\exp\big(\ln(b) z\big)\)
where \(\ln\) denotes the natural logarithm,
\(\ln=\exp^{1}\)
where the superscript at the name of function indicates its iterate; logarithm is minus first iterate of the exponent, id set, the increase function. In wide range of values of \(z\), the identity holds,
\(\exp\big(\ln(z)\big)=z\)
