The most beautiful equation in mathematics is:

It is often attributed to Swiss Mathematician Leonhard Euler. Interestingly enough, this is nothing but a **statement about rotation! **

2^{3} is a shorthand way of writing 2 × 2 × 2. But this is *very very different *from what means. Mathematicians use this trick over and over again. They **overload **notations. In fact is a shorthand way of writing an infinite series.

How can we connect infinite series with rotation? Basically, 1 is not 1! 1 is (1, 0). A point in fact. Then what is **i**? **i **is a shorthand for writing (0, 1). So when you add 1 + 2 π i , you are in fact 'adding' (1, 0) + 2 π (0, 1) = (1, 2 π ).

We have recently launched** 'Access All' **offer.

It includes Mathematics, Physics, Computer Science and Chemistry Advanced Olympiad Programs in a bundle at a much lower price.
