With the help of the Simpsons the Mathologer sets out to introduce the most beautiful math formula, e^(i*pi)+1=0, to the rest of the world. Tying everybody's favourite numbers pi, e, 1, 0, and i (the square root of -1) into a tight knot, Euler's identity is a great example on how beautiful abstract math acquires meaning in the real world.

Enjoy!
