Wau : The most amazing, ancient and singular number; and more

I am sharing a video from ViHart which is very good and a must for an exploring mathematician.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GFLkou8NvJo

And yes, the bonus one is the following link:

I believe that one and especially, the Brilliant Mathematicians here should have a look and at least try to solve them and become the next generation Andrew Wiles.

Yeah, what's really amazing is that it even plays a role in Einstein's General Relativity! Here's the equation
F=8πTGF=\dfrac { 8\pi T }{ G } where FF is this amazing Wau number, GG is the curved spacetime Einstein tensor, and TT is the geometrized stress-energy tensor! Will wonders of this strange number ever cease!

what is this? I didn't know anything about this equation. What is G and T? I cannot understand that still. By the way, how we approached to this number, just how? I never understand this.

Kartik, I hate to disappoint you, but "Wau", or FF, is just 11. In the video, you can see where it gives it away F=e2πi=1F={ e }^{ 2\pi i }=1 So, Einstein's equation is really G=8πTG=8\pi T, which is the basis of his General Relativity. That is, curved spacetime and gravity are one and the same. I was just having fun with this. And so was the person or people responsible for this video. Wau is nothing anything more special than the number 11.

He's already explained what the variables stand for. Tell me, if there is an infinte decimal approximation of Wau please?

@Krishna Ar I don't know and that's what I supposed to ask him. BTW, I actually asked what does "curved spacetime Einstein tensor" and "geometrized stress-energy tensor" mean?

BTW, you haven't told me what I asked you - the 2 questions.

Wau is 11. If that is all you care about you can do something else. But for those who want to know more here's a link to something explaining it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-eS8-1A47Z0. Or you can try proving it from the examples in the video. Which is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GFLkou8NvJo
