Euler's Exponentials

Tuesday, 18 November 2014 - 1:00pm
Museum of London


Leonhard Euler was the most prolific mathematician of all time. He introduced the symbols e  for the exponential number f  for a function and i  for √-1. He discovered what many mathematicians consider to be the most beautiful expression in mathematics, ix = cos+ sinx: a relation connecting the exponential and trigonometric functions. The exponential function and its inverse the logarithm function appear throughout mathematics and its applications, in physics, engineering, mathematical biology, chemistry and economics.
