Euler's Pioneering Equation

The most beautiful theorem in mathematics

Robin Wilson

  • Introduces perhaps the most beautiful of equations in pure mathematics which connects five of the most important numbers in mathematics
  • Its simplicity and profundity have been compared to a Shakespearian sonnet
  • Discusses each of the elements of the equation in turn, explaining why they are so significant
  • Concludes with an analysis of the equation itself, its discovery and significance
  • Combines historical elements with lucid, step-by-step mathematical explanation
