|Manipulative 1 - Euler's Formula Created with GeoGebra.||
Euler's formula is
It is remarkable in that it relates trigonometric function functions with complex
numbers. Euler's formula maps the natural constant
raised to the complex exponent
to the complex plane using the trigonometric expression
This equation is true only if the angle θ is measured
Euler's formula is named after
who published it in its present form in 1748.
Leonard Euler was a very
prolific mathematician. Note that the phrase Euler's Formula is
used to indicate different formulas in different disciplines.
