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
