Other Transcendental Functions

* = SQRT(RDX) square root.
* = LOG(RDX) natural logarithm, i.e. log to base e (where e = 2.718281828...).
* = EXP(RDX) returns the exponential, i.e. e to the power of the argument. This is the inverse of the natural logarithm.
* = LOG10(RD) logarithm to base 10.

Note that LOG10, which may be useful to compute decibel ratios etc., is the only one of this group which cannot be used on a complex argument.
