Washington Irving Stringham (December 10, 1847 – October 5, 1909) was a "Professor of Mathematics and Sometime Dean in the University of California" born in Yorkshire, New York. Stringham is perhaps most notable as the first person to denote the natural logarithm as where is its argument. The use of in place of is commonplace in digital calculators today. "In place of we shall henceforth use the shorter symbol , made up of the initial letters of logarithm and of natural or Napierian."

  • Вашингтон Ирвинг Стрингхем (англ. Washington Irving Stringham, 1847—1909) — американский математик. Родился в Йоркшире, штат Нью-Йорк. В 1877 году окончил Гарвардский колледж, в 1880 году получил степень PhD в университете Джонса Хопкинса. Свою диссертацию под названием «Правильные фигуры в N-мерном пространстве» (англ. Regular Figures in N-dimensional Space) Стрингхэм защитил под руководством известного британского математика Джеймса Джозефа Сильвестра. Наибольшую известность Стрингхему принесло введённое им обозначение натурального логарифма в виде , где является аргументом. Использование вместо
