LOGARITHMIC Effectiveness AND Scaling : Interesting uses : 1

LOGARITHMIC Effectiveness AND Scaling : Interesting uses : 1

Remembering Logarithm’s few applications in couple of algorithm writing.

A logarithmic timeline is a timeline applied out according to a logarithmic scale.Let us think about a popularity factor calculation of an user.
In our logic, we define the Aging as the number of days from the event of interest.we use a log7 scale.

Log7 scale gives advantage as it provides three key segments for application consideration.They are :-

In about a week (7X1 = 7 days),
In about 6 – 8 weeks (7X7 = 49 days),
those towards later half of year (7X7X7 = 343 days).

 

Now, to add advantage for recent activity, invert the scale by using  (log7 365 – log7 DAYS)
