How can we switch from π to τ?
The next time you write something that uses the circle constant, simply say “For convenience, we set τ=2π”, and then proceed as usual. (Of course, this might just prompt the question, “Why would you want to do that?”, and I admit it would be nice to have a place to point them to. If only someone would write, say, a manifesto on the subject…) The way to get people to start using τ is to start using it yourself.
eiπ + 1 = 0
eiτ = 1
