I was working on the general meaning of taking things to the i power -- I was pondering the(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); meaningof

e^pi*i = -1

The proof for this thing is well established, I was musing about meaning. An obvious question was:

What to the i power goes to zero?

As I was hunting for that number (on my TI-83 while driving to work -- and it is very hard to press [2nd] i on that thing with one hand), I came across this number:

4.8104773809655

Namely:

4.8104773809655^i => i

...at least on my TI-83. 4.81047738096535^i on the google calculator.

What is this number, and who has done work on it?

Regards,

Steve Rives
