They do things better with logarithms.

Jaisingh collected and studied all the available astronomical works...Several European works were translated into Sanskrit under his orders, particularly Euclid ’s elements, with a treatise on plane and spherical trigonometry ; and on the construction and use of logarithms ...and also a treatise on conical sections...maps and globes of the Ferenghis were obtained from Surat .
One of the most frequently mentioned equations was Euler's equation, Respondents called it "the most profound mathematical statement ever written"; "uncanny and sublime"; "filled with cosmic beauty "; and "mindblowing". Another asked: "What could be more mystical than an imaginary number interacting with real numbers to produce nothing ?" The equation contains nine basic concepts of mathematics once and only once in a single expression. These are: e (the base of natural logarithms); the exponent operation; ?; plus (or minus, depending on how you write it); multiplication; imaginary numbers; equals; one; and zero.
For any real number x, Euler’s formula is Where e is fundamental constant (the base of natural logarithms) and i = ?1. If we now put x =?, we get e^(i?) = cos ?+i sin ?, and since cos(?) =?1 and sin(?) = 0, this reduces to e^(i?) =?1 so that e i? +1=0.
