\(e^{\pi i}+1=0\)

\(e^{\pi i}=-1\)

\(\pi i = ln(-1)\)<---------- ?????

Is there any mistakes in this?

Sorry Max, this is a well known fact!  

 

However, it's always more interesting to discover these things for yourself than just being told by someone else!  Well done!

There is no fault to your logic :)

 

I do agree though, it is interesting :)

The left hand side is imaginary, so why would you expect the right hand side to be real ?
