One has to digest this alleged "proof". Have You? I tried to follow those guys who made Marathons to succeed this goal as they could not reach the " Sour Grapes". What some of them devised lightheartedly ,the invention and use(God knows howThe King is Naked...)of the HALF PART of EULERS Equation: e^(ipi)=1 but for JUSTICE to prevail since EULER'S Equation states that: e^(iPi)=cos(pi)+i[sin(pi)] then e^(ipi)=1 + i(0) , thus the other solution is e^(ipi)=0.
So take Your pick! This is what this group of guys did not take into consideration! Panagiotis Stefanides http://www.stefanides.gr/theo_circle.htm http://www.stefanides.gr http://www.stefanides.gr_why_logarithm
