The graph of $g(x)=\frac{1}{2} \ln (x)$ (the red graph) is the graph of $f(x)=\ln x$ (the blue graph) vertically shrunk by $\frac{1}{2}$. Looking at the graph, we observe that the vertical asymptote is $x=0$. We also find that the domain and the range of the function $g(x)$ are$$D_g=(0, \infty ) \quad \text{ and } \quad R_g= (- \infty, \infty ),$$respectively.
