This is documentation for Mathematica 6, which was
based on an earlier version of the Wolfram Language.
 Mathematical Constants Mathematica incorporates the latest algorithms—some original to Wolfram Research—for evaluating mathematical constants to any number of digits of precision. For basic constants like and , millions of digits can routinely be computed in seconds. Pi () — pi 3.14 (entered as Esc p Esc) E () — exponential constant e2.718 (entered as Esc ee Esc "exponential e") Degree (°) — conversion factor from radians to degrees GoldenRatio — golden ratio 1.618 EulerGamma — Euler's constant 0.577 StieltjesGamma — Stieltjes constants n Catalan — Catalan's constant C0.916 Glaisher — Glaisher's constant A1.282 Khinchin — Khinchin's constant K2.685      I () — (entered as Esc ii Esc "imaginary i") Root — general root of a polynomial      N — evaluate to any precision RealDigits — list of digits ContinuedFraction — continued fraction expansion FullSimplify — simplify symbolic expressions involving constants TUTORIALS Mathematical Constants MORE ABOUT Complex Numbers Number Recognition
