Natural logarithm, elementwise.
The natural logarithm log is the inverse of the exponential function, so that log(exp(x)) = x. The natural logarithm is logarithm in base e.
Parameters:  x : array_like


Returns:  y : ndarray

Notes
Logarithm is a multivalued function: for each x there is an infinite number of z such that exp(z) = x. The convention is to return the z whose imaginary part lies in [pi, pi].
For realvalued input data types, log always returns real output. For each value that cannot be expressed as a real number or infinity, it yields nan and sets the invalid floating point error flag.
For complexvalued input, log is a complex analytical function that has a branch cut [inf, 0] and is continuous from above on it. log handles the floatingpoint negative zero as an infinitesimal negative number, conforming to the C99 standard.
