# Nature of $y=\cos(e^{-x})$ Can anyone explain me the nature of the graph of $y=\cos(e^{-x})$?

You can tell me why this graph behaves in such a way, how to calculate it's period, why the period is becoming infinite when $x$ approaches $-\infty$, etc.

In other words, tell me everything you can know about the properties of the graph. Note by Vilakshan Gupta

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

It's obvious that there's no period.

Okay, there's no period, but can you tell me why is the graph becoming compact, when $x$ becomes more negative?

I want that, if we are not given the graph , how and what conditions we need to find to draw the graph by hand?
