Definition df-logb 24220
Description: Define the logb operator. This is the logarithm generalized to an arbitrary base. It can be used as (𝐵 logb 𝑋) for "log base B of X". In the most common traditional notation, base B is a subscript of "log". The definition is according to Wikipedia "Complex logarithm": https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Complex_logarithm#Logarithms_to_other_bases (10-Jun-2020). (Contributed by David A. Wheeler, 21-Jan-2017.)
