Units of e

‘Units of e’

Nature often expresses change as functions of the base (e). Functions describing the growth of large objects, such as plants, and the decay of small objects, such as atoms are all also typically expressed as functions of e. Even the blackbody radiation formula is expressed in terms of e. This painting identifies one other surprising place where nature’s unit of change might be found.
