  1. Hi Procyan, I´m awfully sorry for this late reply. I simply wasn´t aware of this page, I was only looking at my "private messages" page.

    As to my signature 1+e^i*pi, I saw this some time ago in a museum (Technik Museum München) where it was written in giant letters on a wall and an explanation was given, IIRC, that Gauss (the mathematician) presented this from time to time to his students to check their mathematical scills. It also said that this equation nicely combined 5 fundamental numbers, namely 1, 0, e, i [=sqrt(-1)] and pi.
    Because e^i*pi = cos(pi) + i*sin(pi), and cos(pi)=-1, sin(pi)=0, the equation can be re-written to read
    1+cos(pi)+i*sin(pi) = 1-1+i*0 = 0. Here we are.
    I don´t think that there is a more behind this equation. But I like it, because at first glance it looks so mysterious.

    Greetings to the poor people who have to live (hanging) “head down” in your area (at least as seen from my vantage point)

    I hope you don't mind a message, I was wondering about your signature...

    I have seen this over my lifetime on several occasions but don't understand its significance...

    1+e^i*pi = 0

    I know it is true and it seems a strange relationship but what does it ...describe?

    i think your coordinates puts at nearly opposite sides of the globe. Start digging, I'll meet you midway
