st: Re: log to the base 2
log base 2 is used frequently if not all the time in microarray
What matters here is what StataCorp thought when
choosing which functions to implement.
The point is when to stop. If another base other than
e and 10 were to be supplied, it would certainly be base 2.
However, I don't think that logs base 2 are especially
often needed in statistical work -- if they were this
would be an FAQ because many others would have the
same question as you -- and as the work-around is easy
I guess StataCorp decided to stop short.
