  • Euler is responsible for symbols we use for e, i, and pi . He wasn't the first person to use pi for 3.14, but he did bring it to prominence. I think you mean e and i. Its no coincidence they are alphabetical he meant to use the vowels in this way, as natural constants. A good book on these would be An Imaginary Tale by Nahin or e: The Story of a Number by Maor
