Q: About the Euler-Mascheroni Constant

Bruno levi LeviOkay, so the limiting difference between the harmonic series and the natural logarithm is known as the Euler-Mascheroni constant, $\gamma= 0,577$. My question is: is there any base for the logarithm so that the limiting difference has other results? Is it possible for the partial sums of the ha...

@DescartesBeforetheHorse I see that you have created a new tag called (euler-mascheroni-constant). Is the intention that this tag should be a synonym of the existing tag (eulers-constant)? — Martin Sleziak 3 mins ago
 
7:09 AM
There was a comment saying that the tags are about two different constants $\gamma$ and $e$ but it's now deleted: math.stackexchange.com/questions/3250649/…
@MartinSleziak yes, it was the intent to create it as a synonym. I created it as it’s own tag by accident. My apologies. — Descartes Before the Horse 1 min ago
@DescartesBeforetheHorse If that's the case, then we'll need a moderator or some user with sufficient score in the tag to suggest/create the tag synonym. I would suggest to continue this discussion in chat (if needed), so that we do not leave here too many comments unrelated to this question. — Martin Sleziak 12 secs ago
What do other think about the synonym $\to$ ?

Q: Should there be a separate tag for Euler's number $e$?

Martin SleziakAt the moment, there are two tags which are related to the number $e$. The e has been synonym of exponential function for a long time.1 A new eulers-number was created in January 2019. Question. Should there be a separate tag for Euler's number $e$? Or is it better to have both e and eulers-num...

 
Queries which show also editors who added/removed the tag: data.stackexchange.com/math/query/1105163/… data.stackexchange.com/math/query/1038474/…
@WillieWong Since you were the mod who created the synonym between and , I wanted to let you know about the question on meta (see above), in case you have some comments on these tags.
@YvesDaoust As far as I can tell, you were the user who created tag. (In this question, you have also created the tag-excerpt.)
Therefore I thought it might be reasonable to let you know that that there is a question on meta discussing this tag and related tags. (I have sent you an invitation in chat so that you get some notification about these comments. I hope the notification reaches you.)
Depending on the outcome of the discussion on meta, it's possible that might be removed or synonymized. In order to preserve it, here is revision history for tag-excerpt and tag-wiki.

@quid I wanted to ask what you think about synonym $\to$ suggested in a comment of the user who created the new tag.
Maybe it§s a bit lazy on my side - but if we want such synonym, it would be easier if it was created by a moderator than going through discussion on meta and/or suggesting the synonym and then voting by regular users.

A: Tag management 2020

Ale Tolcachier$\textbf{Proposal}:$ Create the tag Quotient-ring Searching for "Quotient ring" is:q returns 1010 results. There is also a tag quotient-group, so I thought that there may be one for rings too, given that is common to see a lot of questions about identifying quotient rings with some known ring,...

BTW the tag has 23 questions at the moment.

I must say many of the questions currently tagged eulers-number exhibit exactly why the synonyms were created the first place.

Thanks to both of you for posting an answer.

A: Should there be a separate tag for Euler's number $e$?

Yves DaoustThere is an obvious connection between $e$ and the exponential function $e^x$ (in the strict sense - could also be $a^x$). But the one is a number, important enough to deserve specific study, and the other a function. There must be a substantial corpus on both topics. I would vote for a tag "$e$...

A: Should there be a separate tag for Euler's number $e$?

Willie WongI have no strong feelings about whether there should be a separate tag about the number 'e'. (It was convenient way back when, when most of the questions tagged 'e' is about the function $e^x$.) I do think that the names can be confusing, whenever something has to do with Euler. Maybe, if we ...

Don ThousandProposal: Remove euler-mascheroni-constant. It's a duplicate of eulers-constant

@MartinSleziak the synonym is in principle alright, but the tag eulers constant should go; it's confusing eulers-constant and eulers-number. To note the former seems to be misused with some frequency.
