Euler's Naturally Number One

Newton's laws of motion

Figure in our devotion

To Isaac, the Lord of calculus

And gravity's Earthly attractiveness.

Max and Al partnered the Planck-Einstein relation

That set the photon energy to frequency proportion.

They also played music together in the den;

One playing piano and other violin.

Schrodinger's cat is both dead and alive

In a box with unpredictable radiation.

Erwin is the father of quantum mechanics and derived

The equation for system wave function evolution.

Leonhard's works include equations for beams,

Buckling, inviscid flow and musical theory.

Euler diagrams are used to show syllogisms logically

And the Euler method is still used to solve some ODE's*.

Newton, Einstein, Planck and Schrodinger

Formulated important fundamental laws of nature.

But Euler's identity contains one, none, e, i and pi;

Making him...the most mathematically elegant guy.

*ODE's = Orinary Differential Equations
