## Formula for e

I’ve worked out a formula for e! This came up when I was looking for an antiderivative, if n isn’t equal to 1: if n is equal to 1, then … Continue reading Formula for e

This has been one of Simon’s most ambitious (successful) projects so far and a beautiful grand finale of 2019, also marking his channel reaching 1K subscribers. The project – approximating … Continue reading Approximating pi and e with Randomness

Today, Simon returned to a problem he first encountered at a MathsJam in summer: “Pick random numbers between 0 and 1, until the sum exceeds 1. What is the expected … Continue reading MathsJam Antwerp 20 November 2019. A Blast and a Responsibility.

Simon was showing Dad a graph of how technology is developing exponentially, y = a^x. Dad asked for a specific value of a, and Simon said: “All exponentials are stretched … Continue reading Another evening tea

Euler’s Identity: e^ipi = – 1

The idea comes from a video by Mathologer. Simon sketches a geometric definition of the Euler’s number (e) using integrals. He messed up a little with the integral notation, but … Continue reading Geometric Definition of e

In this video, Simon talks about the discovery of the e constant (Euler’s Number) and how it relates to calculating annual interest rates in banking. Inspired by a Numberphile … Continue reading The discovery of the e constant
