Fundamental Examples
This reminds me that we did not include any number in our list. Probably pi and e are too fundamental, but the Euler constant could be a candidate. |

Fundamental Examples
I agree that basic mathematical examples which are fundamental in physics or other sciences should be counted. (And often they become fundamental in mathematics as well.) We can add the Poincare group en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poincar%C3%A9_group along with the group SU(3) x SU(2) x U(1) (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Standard_Model) |
