Abstract: The asymptotic behavior of several sequence transformations is investigated as $n \to \infty$ when applied to a certain family of logarithmically convergent sequences. The transformations considered are the iterations of the transformations $e_1^{(s)}({A_n})$ of Shanks and ${W_n}$ of Lubkin, the $\theta$-algorithm of Brezinski, the Levin u-and v-transforms, and generalizations of the $\rho$-algorithm and the Neville table. Computational results are given for both real and complex sequences.
