I would like to simplify an expression involving Pi. Actually,
simplifying the expression isn't hard, getting Mathematica to
recognize the simplification is the hard part. Consider:
FullSimplify[Log[1/Sqrt[2 Pi] Exp[x]]]]
Mathematica doesn't do anything to simplify this. However, replacing
the symbol Pi with any other variable in the above leads to the
By trivial, I mean:
Log[Exp[x]] = x, and Log[a/b] = Log[a] - Log[b].
Why does Pi confuse Mathematica so??
