How is this 「という事になっている」in this context generally used? Is there an approximate translation that works here?

• +1 for mentioning Euler's wonderful equation!!! – A.Ellett Feb 23 '16 at 4:55
• Since I'm not entirely sure, I'll not post this as an answer. But, I would move the grammar about when translating into English, "The professor came around to loving Euler's Equation $e^{\pi i}+1=0$". – A.Ellett Feb 23 '16 at 4:57
• 「小説の」とあるので、フィクションだから、「～という設定になっている」っていう意味じゃないですかね。。。 – Chocolate Feb 23 '16 at 5:02
