Many of them. Particulary the ones that have a mythological background.
Lord Voldemort
Yep, I have never heard of him.

Hi;
You do not know who He who must not be named is?
That is because I have never read those books.
I can't believe you don't know who he is
Voldemort? Sounds like a French cheese.
Voldemort?
Yes, post #3 is doing a rootapproximant using a PSLQ.
Okay but is it related to root approximant?
It uses something called Lattice Reduction. Exactly how this works I can not explain. In more general terms it is a way to intelligently guess, with a high probability at what constants make up a decimal.
How does this work?
It is an extension of the extended GCD. Where the extended GCD solves ax + by = c, the PSLQ solves and it solves it in such a way that the are integers. It was called the most important algorithm of the 20th century.
