e^x = pi 
turns into.. 
ln pi = x 

tan(t) = sin(t) / cos(t) 

tan(t) is undefined where cos(t) = 0 
tan(t) is zero where sin(t) = 0 

cos(t) = 0 at t = pi/2 + n pi; n integer 
sin(t) = 0 at t = n pi; n integer 

e^x = exp(x) >= 0 for all x 
so t < 0 aren't included. 

So the smallest t are those closest to, but not equal to zero. 
For sin(t) = 0, t = pi 
For cos(t) = 0, t = pi/2 

tan(exp(x)) = 0 when x = ln(pi) 
tan(exp(x)) undefined when x = ln(pi/2)
