Everybody knows about pi and e. They are important numbers. They are famous for having the importance they do.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

But there are others, such as the golden mean, which are only semi-famous, but have loads of physical significance, perhaps recognized in nature.

Other important numbers, which have mathematical significance, which have not received their due recognition, should be belaureled in this thread. The number does not have to be transcendental, but should not be an integer or a simple fraction.
