  • Robin Wilson, Plenary Speaker, "Euler’s pioneering equation.”

    Abstract: Euler’s equation, the ‘most beautiful equation in mathematics’, links the five most important constants in the subject: 1, 0, π, e and i. Central to both mathematics and physics, it has also featured in a criminal court case, on a postage stamp, and appeared twice in The Simpsons. So what is this equation, how did it arise – and why is it pioneering?
