This one is very interesting, but the fact that Pi was a poor choice for
the constant makes the equation considerably more ugly than it should be.
There is a growing movement to usurp the number Pi with the much more
important constant "2*Pi" (see: http://www.math.utah.edu/~palais/pi.html ).
If we call that new number tau (t). Then Euler's identity becomes:
e^(t * i) = 1
