3.14…

HAPPY PI DAY!

I only have four minutes to post this, so I’m going to talk about one thing- this formula:

BEAUTIFUL!

That’s right. If you take the irrational constant e (2.718…) a raise it to the power of the complex number i ( sqrt(-1) ) times the irrational constant pi (3.14159265…), it equals negative one.

Think about it.

It’s been dubbed the most pleasing equation in mathematics. It fuses together the most basic constants into one elegant phrase.

I will probably post more math stuff later in honor of this great day.
