Q.E.D.

Q. E. D. is an abbreviation of the Latin phrase "quod erat demonstrandum" (literally, "which was to be proved"). Q.E.D. may be written at the end of mathematical proofs to show that the result required for the proof to be complete has been obtained. It is not seen as frequently now as in earlier centuries.
