The Probability Density Function of a Natural Logarithm

The probability density function of a log-transformed random variable, whose p.d.f was a standard normal

I’ve been working in the log domain over the last couple of weeks, specifically using the natural logarithm, denoted by “ln”. Life has been easier this way.

The dataset I’m working on has a component driven by a random variable X that is distributed normally (a Gaussian distribution) with mean = 0 and standard deviation = 1.
