(Swiss mathematician and physicist, 1707-1783) and his beautiful and
extraordinary formula that links the 5 fundamental constants in
Mathematics, namely, e, the base of the natural logarithms, i,
the square root of -1, Pi, the ratio of the circumference of a
circle to its diameter, 1 and 0, together!
is a mathematical formula in complex analysis that
shows a deep relationship between the trigonometric
functions and the complex exponential function.
Euler's formula states that, for any real number x:
Euler's equation or
identity is a special case of the Euler'
(1809-1880, American mathematician, professor at Harvard) gave a
lecture proving "Euler's equation", and concluded:
"Gentlemen, that is
it is absolutely
we cannot understand
and we don't know
what it means.
But we have proved
and therefore we
know it must be the truth."
