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
