## Series

From the Maclaurin series expansions of ${\displaystyle \scriptstyle \log(1+x)}$, we have the alternating harmonic series

${\displaystyle \log(2)=\sum _{n=1}^{\infty }{\frac {(-1)^{n+1}}{n}}.}$

## Continued fraction

The continued fraction for ${\displaystyle \log(2)}$ is

${\displaystyle \log(2)=0+{\cfrac {1}{1+{\cfrac {1}{2+{\cfrac {1}{3+{\cfrac {1}{1+{\cfrac {1}{6+{\cfrac {1}{3+{\cfrac {1}{1+{\cfrac {1}{\ddots }}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}$
