Can anybody give me references to any material on "e" (i.e. 2.71828...)? The type of stuff I'm looking for would in the style of a Martin Gardner article: somewhat technical, but not overwhelming. I'm looking for a book/article along the lines of the book "The Divine Proportion", which is all about the golden ratio. Thanks in advance. Paul Beiser Hewlett-Packard Ft.
