e - like everywhere

Everybody doing any kind of geometry, calculus or higher algebra will have stumbled over this number:

2.71828182845904523536028747135266249775724709369995...

More commonly it is known as e , Euler's number. You may wonder, where does this number come from and why is it so important? Well... If you are like me that is: waiting for simulations to finish, having 20 minutes of spare time on your hands, and having a tenacious drive to understand things. So come along as I explain two different ways that result explain where this beautiful number comes from.

MATLAB® and Objects

Working with objects once a project becomes sufficiently complex makes it much easier to keep track of things. MATLAB® (a.k.a. MATrix LABoratory) is a nice product by a company called MathWorks that makes matrix manipulation incredibly easy. For us engineers and academics it is the standard goto, regardless if we need to rapid prototype some functionality or develop a complex and convoluted system. Only recently did I discover a whole hidden side of  MATLAB®: classes! And because I am an incredibly big fan of those beasts I decided to write a quick summary of how to use them.
