I found no stairway for Euler's infinite product
pi = 2 x 3/2 x 5/3 x 7/6 x 11/10 x 13/14 x 17/18 ...
but for a series whose sum Euler discovered:
'1x1 '2x2 '3x3 '4x4 '5x5 '6x6 ... equals '6 of pi x pi
"1
'1x1 "3
'1x1 '2x2 "5
'1x1 '2x2 '3x3 "7
'1x1 '2x2 '3x3 '4x4 "9
'1x1 '2x2 '3x3 '4x4 '5x5 "11
'1x1 '2x2 '3x3 '4x4 '5x5 '6x6 "13
'1x1 '2x2 '3x3 '4x4 '5x5 '6x6 '7x7 "15
and so on.
