"E" as in E=MCe2?

Ack! no!! :)

e as in the constant posted in the entry.

The limit of the expression (1 + 1/n)^n as n aproaches infinity.

Used to calculate continuously compounded interest for example.

As an exponential function f(x)=e^x, has the amazing property that its derivative (rate of change) equals its functional value -- so at f(1) = e^1 = e, the function has a slope of e as well.

And February 7 is e day because e = 2.718... (2/7).
