Where does e=mc^2 come from?

i would like a concise ( if possible ) mathematic proof, i know about derivatives, and integrals, so you can go on with that...

that's simply because i want to understand why it is like so... this is no homework, but i found no better place to ask it

regards,

Neohaven
