This shows a deep relationship between the exponential function, the [[basic_tools:imaginary_numbers|imaginary unit]] $i$ and $\pi$. (Pi is the ratio between circumference and diameter shared by all circles.) | This shows a deep relationship between the exponential function, the [[basic_tools:imaginary_numbers|imaginary unit]] $i$ and $\pi$.
