COMMENTS

e^Pi and Pi^e (A059850) differ by hardly 3% in magnitude. The determination of the inequality sign between them does not require their actual evaluation, the result being immediate from the basic facts Pi>e and log(x+1)<x for positive x, whence setting x=(Pi/e)1 (>0) yields log(Pi)<Pi/e, or Pi^e < e^Pi.
The formulas give e^Pi, not a(n). Note that e^Pi  Pi = 19.999099979...; that's why e^Pi and 20 + Pi have many common decimal digits.  M. F. Hasler, Oct 24 2009
e^Pi is transcendental, as proved by Gelfond.  Charles R Greathouse IV, May 07 2013
Nesterenko proves that this constant is algebraically independent of Pi and Gamma(1/4) over Q.  Charles R Greathouse IV, Nov 11 2013

FORMULA

e^Pi = 32*Product_{j>=0} (u(j+1)/u(j))^2^(j+1)) where u(0)=1 and v(0)=1/sqrt(2); u(n+1) = u(n)/2 + v(n)/2, v(n+1) = sqrt(u(n)v(n)) (deduced from Salamin algorithm for Pi).  Benoit Cloitre, Aug 14 2003
e^Pi = Sum_{k>=0} a(k)/k!/2^k where a(0)=1, a(1)=6 and a(n) = (40  4*n + n^2)*a(n2) for n>=2 (from expansion of exp(6*asin(x)) at x=1/2).  Jaume Oliver Lafont, Oct 21 2009
exp(Pi) ~= log(Pi) + 7*Pi.  Alexander R. Povolotsky, Oct 24 2009
