# 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.

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
$F=\dfrac { 8\pi T }{ G }$ where $$F$$ is this amazing Wau number, $$G$$ is the curved spacetime Einstein tensor, and $$T$$ is the geometrized stress-energy tensor! Will wonders of this strange number ever cease! · 2 years, 4 months ago

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. · 2 years, 4 months ago

Kartik, I hate to disappoint you, but "Wau", or $$F$$, is just $$1$$. In the video, you can see where it gives it away $$F={ e }^{ 2\pi i }=1$$ So, Einstein's equation is really $$G=8\pi T$$, 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 $$1$$. · 2 years, 4 months ago

He's already explained what the variables stand for. Tell me, if there is an infinte decimal approximation of Wau please? · 2 years, 4 months ago

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. · 2 years, 4 months ago
