e - The Transcendental NumberDate: 5/16/96 at 17:24:31 From: Anonymous Subject: e - the transcendental number In doing a calculus project for my pre-AP Calculus class, I discovered that no one has written a history of "e", the transcendental number. Can you help us? Date: 5/17/96 at 16:52:30 From: Doctor Ken Subject: Re: e - the transcendental number Hello! Actually, I think somebody has written a history of e. I found this: E. Maor, e: The Story of a Number, Princeton Univ. Press 1994 You might see if your librarian can find it for you. -Doctor Ken, The Math Forum Check out our web site! http://mathforum.org/dr.math/ |
