What makes us use e instead, with its mysterious provenance and transcendental secrets? To be an exemplar, you'd also want some consolidation. I feel like this one begs the so what? What does this amazing number tell us about math? Or your impressions from it.<br />Other Cs: +John Goldenhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/18212162438307044259noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2539077593877646339.post-36105536587701136502015-11-30T09:25:25.804-08:002015-11-30T09:25:25.804-08:00I like that you gave a brief history on where Eule...I like that you gave a brief history on where Euler's number came from and some of its applications. I think that if you wanted to expand on it you could explain more in detail what the importance of this number and other uses, where it shows up in geometry.
