Publisher: DocServer
Number of pages: 30

Description:
The desire to understand Pi, the challenge, and originally the need, to calculate ever more accurate values of Pi, the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter, has challenged mathematicians -- great and less great -- for many many centuries and, especially recently, Pi has provided compelling examples of computational mathematics. Pi, uniquely in mathematics is pervasive in popular culture and the popular imagination.
