Abstract
In this article, which is the second of our series on mathematical constants, we feature one of the most remarkable numbers in all of mathematics—the number e, a number that is bound to occupy centre place in any account of mathematics (along with its close cousin, the number π). It turns out that there is so much to say about e that we will need to devote two articles to this constant alone!
