RELATION & FUNCTION - TRANSCENDENTAL FUNCTION

__CLASSIFICATION OF FUNCTION -__

__B.)
Transcendental Functions –__

**A function
which is not algebraic is called transcendental. In other words, transcendental
functions are not capable of being produced by the algebraical operations of
addition, multiplication, and involution, or the inverse operations.**

**The following
are different types of transcendental functions.**

**(i) Trigonometric
Functions, such as cos
x, tan 3x, etc.**

**(ii) Inverse
Trigonometric Functions, such as sin⁻¹ x, sec⁻¹ x, etc.**

**(iii) Exponential Functions. A function, in which the domain
(independent) variable is an exponent, is an exponential function. A simple
exponential function is y = 2ˣ**

**(iv) Logarithmic Function. The correspondence x → log x is a
logarithmic function.**
