COMMENTS

A function f is submultiplicative on S if, for any x and y in S, f(x)f(y) <= f(xy).

Gustavsson, Maligranda, & Peetre give as an example Zafran's use of log(e^2 + x) as a submultiplicative function. Since e^2 is greater than this constant it is submultiplicative on x >= 1. - Charles R Greathouse IV, Sep 13 2017
