Since past two years I have been using the mathematical constant 'e' over and again in mathematics (calculus and logarithm). I wonder how this number first originated. Who first used this number , this particular number e=2.718281828459045.... .(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thank you for your help in advance.
