%%% Despite its representation by a Greek letter,
%%% the Greeks did not use that symbol for the
%%% constant. Instead, it was Leonhard Euler in
%%% September 1727 who first used the name pi for
%%% the ratio of the periphery of a circle to its
%%% radius ($ 2 \pi $ in modern notation); see
%%% entry Euler:1727:TEP. He later used it for
%%% the ratio of the periphery to the diameter,
%%% and that convention was soon widely adopted.
%%%
%%% The constant pi was proved to be irrational
%%% by Lambert in 1766, using a continued
%%% fraction, and thus showing that the digits of
%%% pi neither terminate, nor repeat in any
%%% number base.
%%%
%%% In 1882, Lindemann proved that pi is also
%%% transcendental, showing that the digits of an
%%% integer polynomial of pi cannot repeat, and
%%% thus, nonzero positive integral powers of pi
%%% cannot have repeating decimals.
%%%
%%% Human interest in the problem of calculating
%%% numerical values of pi has existed for more
%%% than 1500 years, but it was only the advent
%%% of electronic digital computers that made it
%%% possible to advance beyond a few hundred
%%% known digits. By mid-2010, the record for
%%% correct decimal digits of pi stood at about 5
%%% * 10**12, and by late 2011, that had grown to
%%% more than 10**13 (10 trillion) decimal
%%% digits. See entries Bailey:2011:CPI and
%%% Bailey:2013:PDU for tables of historical,
%%% early computer, and modern computer records
%%% for the digits of pi, and entry Yee:2013:IST
%%% for the latest record. See entry
%%% Shelburne:2012:ED for a reconstruction of the
%%% first computer calculation of pi and e (about
%%% 2000 decimal digits each), carried out on the
%%% ENIAC on Labor Day (early September) weekend,
%%% 1949.
%%%
%%% In 1997, a remarkable equation, the
%%% now-famous BBP (Bailey, Borwein, and Plouffe)
%%% formula was discovered. In (La)TeX markup
%%% that produces a one-line typeset equation, it
%%% can be stated like this:
%%%
%%% \pi = \sum_{k = 0}^\infty
%%% \frac{1}{16^k}
%%% \left (
%%% \frac{4}{8 k + 1} -
%%% \frac{2}{8 k + 4} -
%%% \frac{1}{8 k + 5} -
%%% \frac{1}{4 k + 6}
%%% \right )
%%%
%%% The BBP discoverers showed that their formula
%%% has the astonishing property that it can be
%%% used to generate digits of pi in any base
%%% that is a power of 2, STARTING from the n-th
%%% digit, and WITHOUT knowing all previous
%%% digits 1, 2, ..., n - 1.
%%%
%%% It has since been proved that no such formula
%%% exists for pi in base 10, and that similar
%%% formulas can be exhibited for other
%%% constants, such as \pi^2, \zeta(2), \zeta(3),
%%% Catalan's constant, \log(k) (k in [2, 22]),
%%% and many arctangents.
%%%
%%% By contrast, it is conjectured that no such
%%% formulas exist for the base of the natural
%%% logarithm, e = \exp(1) ~= 2.718281828....
%%%
%%% A long-standing, but still unproved,
%%% conjecture, understandable even to a grade
%%% school student, is that the digits of pi form
%%% a random sequence: that is, in a sufficiently
%%% large digit sequence, the digits each occur
%%% with equal probability. Such a number is
%%% called a ``normal number''. Note that this
%%% does NOT mean that short digit sequences are
%%% random: the sequences 0123456789 and
%%% 7777777777 both occur within the first
%%% 22,900,000,000 decimal digits of pi. The
%%% six-digit sequence 999999 appears at the 762nd
%%% decimal place, and is called the ``Feynman
%%% point'', after Physics Nobel laureate Richard
%%% Feynman: for background, see
%%%
%%% http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Feynman_point
%%%
%%% Normality has been proven for some other
%%% irrational constants, but never for pi.
%%% Statistical analysis of the known computed
%%% digits of pi strongly suggest normality, but
%%% a mathematical proof remains elusive, and
%%% appears at present to be very difficult.
%%%
%%% See entries Marsaglia:2005:RPO and
%%% Marsaglia:2006:RCS for remarks on statistical
%%% measures of the randomness of digits of pi,
%%% and how many such proposed measures are
%%% seriously flawed. The second of those
%%% articles concludes with this remark about
%%% tests of randomness: ``$\pi$ sails through
%%% all of them''.
%%%
%%% The checksum field above contains a CRC-16
%%% checksum as the first value, followed by the
%%% equivalent of the standard UNIX wc (word
%%% count) utility output of lines, words, and
%%% characters. This is produced by Robert
%%% Solovay's checksum utility.",

proved that continued fraction expansion, then showed
that if $x$ is nonzero and rational, then the continued
fraction must be irrational. Because $\tan(\pi / 4) =

therefore, $\pi$ is irrational.",

{\"a}hnlich denen des Herrn Fox, die 1855 auf
Veranlassung de Morgan's von Herrn Ambroise Smith
gemacht worden sind. Er bemerkt, dass die von Herrn
Frisby benutzten Reihen unabh{\"a}ngig von einander
gegeben worden sind von Hutton, Euler, H. James
Thomson, Blissard und de Morgan, und discutirt einige
{\"a}hnliche Reihen von Euler und Hutton. Dann folgt
eine Liste der Berechner von $\pi$ und der von ihnen
erreichten Stellenzahl, von Archimedes bis zur
Jetztzeit. Diese Liste beruht auf einer {\"a}hnlichen,
die Herr Bierens de Haan in den ``Verhandlingen'' von
Amsterdam, Bd. IV. p. 22 1858 gegeben hat. Dieselbe
zeigt das allm{\"a}lige Wachsen der mathematischen
H{\"u}lfsmittel im Verlaufe von 2000 Jahren. Der
{\"u}brige Theil der Arbeit ist haupts{\"a}chlich den
Werken und Rechnungen von Ludolf van Ceulen und Snell
gewidmet. Der Verfasser bringt Gr{\"u}nde f{\"u}r die
Vermuthung vor, dass van Ceulen's Werth mit 35 Stellen
zuerst durch die Worte auf seinem Grabe bekannt wurden.
(Zus{\"a}tze und Verbesserungen zu der Arbeit und zu
der Liste finden sich in des Verfassers Arbeit: ``On
the quadrature of the circle, A. D. 1580-1630.''

$z$ als die $N$ als ganz vorausgesetzt werden. Herr
Lindemann (siehe auch JFM 14.0369.02, JFM 14.0369.03)
erweitert die hier gemachten Schl{\"u}sse und gelangt

Wurzeln der Gleichung $f_i(z) = 0$ bezeichnet, wird
kurz $$\varsigma e^{z_i} = e^{z_i} + e^{z_i '} + e^{z_i

N_2\varsigma e^{z_2} + \cdots + N_s\varsigma e^{z_s}$$
nicht bestehen, es sei denn, dass eine der Gr{\"o}ssen

Ersetzt man die Gleichungen $f_i(z) = 0$ durch

dass die Ludolph'sche Zahl $\pi$ eine transcendente
Zahl ist. Die angef{\"u}hrten S{\"a}tze bleiben
bestehen, wenn man unter den $N_i$ nicht ganze oder

abstract-2 = "In his paper {\em Sur la fonction exponential} (C.R.
Bd. LXXVII, S.F.D. M.V. (1873) p. 248, JFM 05.0248.01)
Mr. Hermite has proved the impossibility of a relation
of the form $$N_0 e^{z_0} + N_1 e^{z_1} + \cdots + N_n
e^{z_n} = 0$$, where both $z$ and $N$ are given. Mr.
Lindemann (see also JFM 14.0369.02, JFM 14.0369.03)
extends the conclusions made here and arrives at the
following sentence: ``If $$f_1 (z) = 0, f_2 (z) = 0,
\ldots, f_s (z) = 0$$ $s$ are irreducible algebraic
equations of the form $$z^{n} + a_1z^{n-1} \ldots + a_n
= 0$$, where $a_1$, $a_2$, $\ldots$ $a_n$ are whole
numbers, and $z_i$, $z_i'$, $z_i''$, $\ldots$ are roots
of the equation $f_i(z) = 0$, and $$\varsigma e^{z_i} =
e^{z_i} + e^{z_i '} + e^{z_i ' '} + \ldots$$, where
$N_0$, $N_1$, $\ldots$, $N_s$ are arbitrary nonzero
whole numbers, then a relation of the form $$0 = N_0 +
N_1 \varsigma e^{z_1} + N_2 \ varSigma e^{z_2} + \cdots
+ N_s \varsigma e^{z_s}$$ does not exist, unless one of
the values $z$ is zero.\par
If one replaces the equations $f_i (z) = 0$ by those
irreducible equations for which the numbers $$Z_1 =
z_1, Z_2 = z_1 + z_2, Z_3 = z_1 + z_2 + z_3, \ldots,
Z_n = z_1 + z_2 \cdots + z_n$$ are satisfied, then this
is a special case of the sentence: ``If $z$ one of zero
different rational or algebraically irrational numbers,
then $e^{\tau}$ is always transcendental. ``Thus, it is
proven that the Ludolph number of $\pi$ is a
transcendental number. The aforementioned theorem
holds, if one of the $N_i$ is not whole or rational,
but instead, is an arbitrary algebraic-irrational
number. It similarly follows from the above statement
that: `One concludes that if $N_0$, $N_1$, $\ldots$,
$N_n$ are arbitrary, and if $z_0$, $z_1$, $\ldots$,
$z_n$ are arbitrary, different (real or complexe)
algebraic numbers, then a relation of the form $$0 =
N_0e^{z_0} + N_1e^{z_1} + \cdots + N_n e^{z_n}$$ cannot
exist, unless $N_i$ is zero",

($\exp$, $\log$, $\arctan$, $\sin$, $\cosh$, etc.), and
let $M(n)$ be the number of single-precision operations
required to multiply $n$-bit integers. It is shown that
$f(x)$ can be evaluated, with relative error $O(2-n)$,
in $O(M(n)log (n))$ operations as $n \rightarrow
\infty$, for any floating-point number $x$ (with an
$n$-bit fraction) in a suitable finite interval. From
the Sch{\"o}nhage--Strassen bound on $M(n)$, it follows
that an $n$-bit approximation to $f(x)$ may be
evaluated in $O(n \log_(n) \log \log(n))$ operations.
Special cases include the evaluation of constants such
as $\pi$ $e$, and $e^\pi$. The algorithms depend on the
theory of elliptic integrals, using the
arithmetic-geometric mean iteration and ascending
Landen transformations.",

determinant $\pm 1$ is given which has as corollaries
generalizations of classical theorems of Dirichlet and
Kronecker. This construction yields a geometrically
convergent algorithm successfully generalizing the
Euclidean algorithm to finite sets of real numbers.
Applied to such a set this algorithm terminates if and
only if the set is integrally linearly dependent and
the algorithm gives absolute simultaneous integral
approximations if and only if the set is integrally
linearly independent. This development applies to
complex numbers, can be used to give proofs of
irreducibility of polynomials and yields effective
lower bounds on heights of integral relations.",

depends on a parameter $b$ in the interval $(1/2,1)$,
an $n$-tuple $x \in \mathbf{R}^n$ and a hyperplane.
This algorithm generates a sequence of matrices $M_k$
such that one of the following holds: (1) Termination:
There exists a $k$ such that a column of $M_k$ is an
integral relation among the entries of $x$, or (2)
Approximation: For every $\epsilon > 0$ there exists an
integer $K \geq 1$ such that for each $k \geq K$ the
rows of $M_k^{-1}$ give $n$ linearly independent
lattice points in $Z^n$ each within a distance of the
line determined by $x$. Some applications of this
algorithm are given in the end of the paper.",

abstract = "More than 200 million decimal places of {$\pi$} were
calculated using an arithmetic geometric mean formula
independently discovered by E. Salamin and R. P. Brent
in 1976. Correctness of the calculation was verified
through Borwein's quartic convergent formula developed
in 1983. The computation took CPU times of 5 hours 57
minutes for the main calculation and 7 hours 30 minutes
for the verification calculation on the HITAC S-820
model 80 supercomputer with 256 MB of main memory and 3
GB of high speed semiconductor storage, Extended
Storage, to shorten I/O time.\par
Computation was completed in 27th of January 1988. At
that day two programs generated values up to $3 \times
2^{26}$, about 201 million. The two results agreed
except for the last 21 digits. These results also agree
with the 133,554,000 places of calculation of $\pi$
which was done by the author in January 1987. Compare
to the record in 1987, 50\% more decimal digits were
calculated with about $1/6$ of CPU
time.\par
Computation was performed with real arithmetic based
vectorized Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) multiplier and
newly vectorized multiple-precision add, subtract and
(single word) constant multiplication programs.
Vectorizations for the later cases were realized
through first order linear recurrence vector
instruction on the S-820. Details of the computation
and statistical tests on the first 200 million digits
of $\pi - 3$ are reported.",

investigated for properties of randomness. Using a
measure of randomness based on several different runs
statistics, the decimal expansions of these irrational
numbers behaved very much like random sequences when
compared to the outputs of two popular random number
generators. Also, for a better understanding of power,
the measure of randomness was evaluated for several
different kinds of nonrandom digit sequences.",

John von Neumann for the production of
``pseudo-random'' numbers in about 1949, hundreds of
other methods have been introduced. While each may have
some virtue a single uniformly superior method has not
emerged. The problems of cyclical repetition and the
need to pass statistical tests for randomness still
leave the issue unresolved. The aim of this article is
to suggest the most natural random number generator of
all, the decimals of $\pi$, as a unique source of
random numbers. There is no cyclic behaviour, all
finite dimensional distributions of the sequence are
uniform, so that it satisfies all the properties of
today's generation of statistical tests; because of the
manner in which the numbers are generated it is
conjectured that it will satisfy any further test with
probability one. In addition, the history of $\pi$, its
discovery and elucidation, is co-extensive with the
entire history of mankind.",

abstract = "We outline a method for computing the n'th decimal (or
any other base) digit of $\pi$ in $C n^3 \log(n)^3$
time and with very little memory. The computation is
based on the recently discovered
Bailey--Borwein--Plouffe algorithm and the use of a new
algorithm that simply splits an ordinary fraction into
its components. The algorithm can be used to compute
other numbers like $\zeta(3)$, $\pi \sqrt{3}$, $\pi^2$
and $2 / \sqrt{5} \log(\tau)$ where $\tau$ is the
golden ratio. The computation can be achieved without
having to compute the preceding digits. We claim that
the algorithm has a more theoretical rather than
practical interest, we have not found a faster
algorithm, nor have we proven that one does not
exist.
The formula for Pi used is $\sum_{n = 1}^\infty n 2^n /
{{2 n} \choose {n}} = \pi + 3$.",

quaternion number system and let
${\mathbb{O}}({\mathbb{K}})$ be the corresponding
integers. Let $ x = (x_{1}, \ldots, x_{n})$ be a
vector in ${\mathbb{K}}^{n}$. The vector $x$ has an
integer relation if there exists a vector $m = (m_{1},

\ne 0$, such that $m_{1} x_{1} + m_{2} x_{2} + \ldots +

parameterized integer relation construction algorithm
PSLQ$(\tau)$, where the parameter $\tau $ can be
freely chosen in a certain interval. Beginning with an
arbitrary vector $x = (x_{1}, \ldots, x_{n}) \in
{\mathbb{K}}^{n}$, iterations of PSLQ$(\tau)$ will
produce lower bounds on the norm of any possible
relation for $x$. Thus PSLQ$(\tau)$ can be used to
prove that there are no relations for $x$ of norm less
than a given size. Let $M_{x}$ be the smallest norm of
any relation for $x$. For the real and complex case and
each fixed parameter $\tau $ in a certain interval, we
prove that PSLQ$(\tau)$ constructs a relation in less
than $O(n^{3} + n^{2} \log M_{x})$ iterations.",

producing reliable random numbers as described by Knuth
(Knuth, D. E., 1981, The Art of Computer Programming,
Vol. 2, Addison-Wesley) gave birth to a new generation
of random number generators such as billions of
decimals of $ \pi $. To show that these decimals
satisfy all criterion of being random, Bailey and
Crandall (Bailey, D. B. and Crandall, R. E., 2003,
Random generators and normal numbers, to appear in
Experimental Mathematics) provided a proof toward the
normality of $ \pi $.\par
In this article, we try to show similar results by
considering the continued fraction of $ \pi $, which
appears random as opposed to other supposed normal
numbers whose continued fractions are not random at
all. For this purpose, we analyze the continued
fraction of $ \pi $ and discuss the randomness of its
partial quotients. Some statistical tests are performed
to check whether partial quotients follow the Khinchin
distribution. Finally, we discuss rare elements in the
continued fraction of $ \pi $.",

frequency-of-digit counts are applied to the decimal
expansions of $ \pi $, $e$ and $ \sqrt {2}$, using the
Diehard Battery of Tests adapted to base 10 rather than
the original base 2. The first $ 10^9$ digits of $ \pi
$, $e$ and $ \sqrt {2}$ seem to pass the Diehard tests
very well. But so do the decimal expansions of most
rationals $ k / p$ with large primes $p$. Over the
entire set of tests, only the digits of $ \sqrt {2}$
give a questionable result: the monkey test on 5-letter
words. Its significance is discussed in the
text.\par
Three specific $ k / p$ are used for comparison. The
cycles in their decimal expansions are developed in
reverse order by the multiply-with-carry (MWC) method.
They do well in the Diehard tests, as do many fast and
simple MWC RNGs that produce base-$b$ `digits' of the
expansions of $ k / p$ for $ b = 2^{32}$ or $ b =
2^{32} - 1$. Choices of primes $p$ for such MWC RNGs
are discussed, along with comments on their
implementation.",

pass these tests as well as some of the best RNGs, and
could well serve in their stead if the digits could be
easily and quickly produced in the computer---and they
can, at least for rationals $k / p$. Simple and fast
methods are developed to produce, in reverse order, for
large primes $p$ and general bases $b$, the periodic
cycles of the base-$b$ expansions of $k / p$. Specific
choices provide high quality, fast and simple RNGs with
periods thousands of orders of magnitude greater than
what are currently viewed as the longest. Also included
are historical references to decimal expansions and
their relation to current, often wrong, website

\cite{Tu:2005:SRD} has led to worldwide reports that Pi
is less random than we thought, or that Pi is not the
best random number generator, or that Pi seems good but
not the best. A careful examination of the Tu and
Fischman procedure shows that it is needlessly
complicated and can be reduced to study of the average
value of $(U_2 - U_1) (U_2 - U_3)$ for uniform variates
U produced by a RNG, (but not on their distribution).
The authors' method of assigning a letter grade, A+, A,
B, C, D, E to a sample mean, based on its distance from
the expected value, suggests naivety in the extreme.
Application, in the present article, to the first 960
million digits of the expansion of Pi shows that they
perform as well as other RNGs on not only the average
for $(U_2 - U_1) (U_2 - U_3)$, but on the more
difficult test for their distribution, consistent with
results previously shown in this journal that Pi does
quite well on far more extensive and difficult-to-pass
tests of randomness.",

abstract = "We consider methods for finding high-precision
approximations to simple zeros of smooth functions. As
an application, we give fast methods for evaluating the
elementary functions $\log(x)$, $\exp(x)$, $\sin(x)$
etc. to high precision. For example, if $x$ is a
positive floating-point number with an $n$-bit
fraction, then (under rather weak assumptions) an
$n$-bit approximation to $\log(x)$ or $\exp(x)$ may be
computed in time asymptotically equal to $13 M(n)
\lg(n)$, where $M(n)$ is the time required to multiply
floating-point numbers with $n$-bit fractions. Similar
results are given for the other elementary functions.
Some analogies with operations on formal power series
(over a field of characteristic zero) are discussed. In
particular, it is possible to compute the first $n$
terms in $\log(1 + a_1 x + \cdots)$ or $\exp(a_1.x) +
\cdots$ in time $O(M(n))$, where $M(n)$ is the time
required to multiply two polynomials of degree $n - 1$.
It follows that the first $n$ terms in a $q$-th power
$(1 + a_1 x + \cdots)^q$ can be computed in time
$O(M(n))$, independent of $q$. One of the results of
this paper is the ``Gauss--Legendre'' or
``Brent--Salamin'' algorithm for computing pi. This is
the first quadratically convergent algorithm for pi. It
was also published in Brent [J. ACM 23 (1976),
242--251], and independently by Salamin [Math. Comp. 30
(1976), 565--570].",

abstract = "Hypergeometric series are powerful mathematical tools
with many usages. Many mathematical functions, such as
trigonometric functions, can be partly or entirely
expressed in terms of them. In most cases this allows
efficient evaluation of such functions, their
derivatives and their integrals. They are also the most
efficient way known to compute constants, such as $ \pi
$ and $e$, to high precision. Binary splitting is a low
complexity algorithm for summing up hypergeometric
series. It is a divide-and-conquer algorithm and can
therefore be parallelized. However, it requires large
number arithmetic, increases memory usage, and exhibits
asymmetric workload, which makes it non-trivial to
parallelize. We describe a high performing parallel
implementation of the binary splitting algorithm for
summing hypergeometric series on shared-memory
multicores. To evaluate the implementation we have
computed $ \pi $ to 5 trillion digits in August 2010
and 10 trillion digits in October 2011 both of which
were new world records. Furthermore, the implementation
techniques described in this paper are general, and can
be used to implement applications in other domains that
exhibit similar features.",

described the first use of a computer, the ENIAC, to
calculate the decimal expansion of $\pi$. Since the
history of $\pi$ stretches back over thousands of
years, the use of the ENIAC to determine $\pi$ is an
important historical and technological milestone. It is
especially interesting since the ENIAC was not designed
to perform this type of calculation as it could only
store 200 decimal digits while the determination of e
and $\pi$ required manipulating numbers 2000+ digits
long. Starting with Reitwiesner's description of the
calculation, the known architecture of the ENIAC, how
it was programmed, and the mathematics used, we examine
why the calculation was undertaken, how the calculation
had to be done, and what was subsequently learned.",

Professor John von Neumann expressed an interest in the
possibility that the ENIAC might sometime be employed
to determine the value of $\pi$ and $e$ to many decimal
places with a view toward obtaining a statistical
measure of the randomness of the distribution of the
digits.'' From page 2: ``\ldots{} Augustus De Morgan
(1806--1871) who noticed the smaller number of
appearances of the digit 7 in Shank's 607 digit
determination of $\pi$. It was later determined that
Shank's determination had an error beginning at the
528th digit.'' From page 11: ``A preliminary
investigation has indicated that the digits of $e$
deviate significantly from randomness (in the sense of
staying closer to their expected values than a random
sequence of this length normally would) while for $\pi$
no significant deviations have so far been detected.''

scholars, graduate students, and interested readers, is
a survey of scholarship in the mathematical sciences in
ancient Greece and medieval Islam. It consists of six
articles (three by Berggren himself) covering research
from the middle of the 20th century to the present. The
remainder of the book contains studies by eminent
scholars of the ancient and medieval mathematical
sciences. They serve both as examples of the breadth of
current approaches and topics, and as tributes to
Berggren's interests by his friends and colleagues.",
