# Whats your favourite mathematrical theorem? Watch

1. The volume of the n-dimensional ball (or n-ball), is given by:

where is its radius and is the gamma function. Any even-dimensional ball has volume:

and, summing up all the unit-ball (R=1) volumes of even-dimension gives:

(Taken from Wikipedia). This is just awesome.
2. That every continuous function on a closed interval is bounded.

JOKING, I don't believe real numbers exist lol
3. Euler's identity - it's simultaneous simplicity and yet underlying complexity is something to behold.

The Binomial Theorem
I was considering that one too it blows my mind... And for negative exponents and rational and real exponents... It's a real peice of art... Love it
11. The result of Black-Scholes is really nice*

Great minds think alike.
And agreed.
13. Marden's Theorem:

Suppose the zeroes and of a cubic are non-collinear. There is a unique ellipse inscribed in the triangle with vertices and tangent to the sides at their midpoint. The foci of that ellipse are the zeroes of the derivative .
14. Its not even a theorem but i bloody love the quadratic equation, i remember being so bloody proud knowing it off by heart.

Lol it is a theorem though
Like c squared = a squared + b squared
Here's my favourite

Same. I love the eloquent manner in which you expressed this!
