Attempt to formally generalize log, exp functions to 3,4,5..(n,m) log exp
#7

Yeah, I see its even much simpler to prove than I did, and we can also drop the demand of continuity. However your proof(s) omits the case of . So I will add the detail:

If for f being defined on , then for . So if there is at least one with (i.e. is not identically 0) then .
Let now in our original equation: . With we get for all .

So either or .

@Ivars: this proof also works for hyperreals.
