Abstract

This study suggests that Euler's formula including time as a variable [exp(it) = cos(t)+ isin(t)] gives, through a series of π/2 rotations of axes of time [imaginary time (it) and real time (t)], exponential functions with base e [exp(t) and exp(-t)] used for the growth analysis of ruminants and forages.
