Logexpand

-- Option variable: logexpand Default value: true

Causes log(a^b) to become b*log(a). If it is set to all, log(a*b) will also simplify to log(a)+log(b). If it is set to super, then log(a/b) will also simplify to log(a)-log(b) for rational numbers a/b, a#1. (log(1/b), for integer b, always simplifies.) If it is set to false, all of these simplifications will be turned off.

There are also some inexact matches for logexpand. Try ?? logexpand to see them.
