This section is devoted to things related to the
constant e, the base of the "natural" exponential
and logarithmic functions. 





"Transcendental Meditation" is about the definitions
of e, both as the classical limit and in terms of
area under a curve. It is the simplest way I
know of to of make the connection and prove the
existence of the classical limit in a way my
students seem to enjoy. The images below are
thumbnails of the four page manuscript. By
clicking on them you should be able to see the high
resolution images, which on my computer are too big
but hopefully you can reformat them. I will
try to solve this problem and reformat them here.















Plans are for
a second paper to be published here on the
convergence of the "exponential tower function"
which is the limit of "x to the x to the x to the
x...".
