    ln 0

    My calculator does not do Ln 0. Why is that?

    $\displaystyle \ln (0)$ is not defined. If we consider the inverse then it follows that you'd need a value of x such that $\displaystyle e^x = 0$ and since y=0 is an asymptote of $\displaystyle e^x$ it follows that $\displaystyle \ln(0)$ does not exist
