e^pi and pi^e 2009-10-22
From Natalie:
Question from natalie, a student:

Without using your calculator, prove which is bigger: e^pi or pi^e

we talked about ad absurdum in class, so I'm assuming that is how I approach this question, but since neither of them have a variable( like the examples we actually solved in class), I'm not quite sure how to solve it....

e^pi > pi^e 2001-07-27
From Dusty:
What book(s) contain a proof that ePi > Pie? I think it might be in Problems in Analysis published by Springer-Verlag but I have not been able to check.
