John Napier discussed logarithms in 1614 in his book titled Mirifici Logarithmorum Canonis Descriptio. He probably discovered it some time before 1614.

The use of logarithms did not reduce errors when performing calculations. The use of logarithms made calculations faster possibly at the loss of some precision.
