E

  • E is the exponential constant (base of natural logarithms), with numerical value .
  • Mathematical constant (see Section A.3.11).
  • E can be entered in StandardForm and InputForm as , ee or \[ExponentialE].
  • See the Mathematica book: Section 1.1.3Section 3.2.8.

    Further Examples

    This computes a numerical approximation to E.

    In[1]:=

    Out[1]=

    This gives a well-known result due to L. Euler.

    In[2]:=

    Out[2]=

    Because constants such as E are numeric quantities, Mathematica can evaluate this inequality.

    In[3]:=

    Out[3]=
