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 (entered as Esc p Esc)
E () — exponential constant (entered as Esc ee Esc "exponential ")
Degree (°) — conversion factor from radians to degrees (entered as Esc deg Esc)
GoldenRatio golden ratio
EulerGamma Euler's constant
StieltjesGamma Stieltjes constants
Catalan Catalan's constant
Glaisher Glaisher's constant
Khinchin Khinchin's constant
