Re: Pi DiscussionYes, his work with Hardy on the then Hardy Ramanujan formula for partitions of n were checked by the combinatoricist Percy McMahon. They were done mostly by hand. I think he went up to p(200)=3,972,999,029,388 In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

Re: Pi DiscussionHi gAr, I saw the following idea on another maths site, where they used a simple denominator and some suitable large integer for the numerator as a fractional approximation of pi: That gives accuracy of pi to 15 decimal places...as yours does, but this is a little more accurate. Greater accuracy can be achieved by increasing 2's exponent and the numerator: eg, this next one, which is accurate to 30 decimal places: In these calculations pi is the ratio of the large integer and the chosen power of 2. So, to find the integer value: The same could be done with other numerators and denominators, of course, but this is just a simple example FWIW.

Re: Pi DiscussionTranscendental or GiB or ...
Please leave gAr and phrontister alone, okay? If two members are having a math discussion then sit down, cross your arms and just listen. You will definitely learn something. Taunting people in an attempt for you to be the center of attention is out. Do you understand?
I do not know what you are driving at with that but I am not happy with it. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Pi DiscussionRamanujan came up with a lot of new ones. The continued fractions are really nice. Amazing the way people in the past came up with some of them. When you think that they did not even have a quality pen or a good piece of paper, and by candlelight... In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Pi DiscussionPi can't be calculated its value is taken as an approximation and if you want to calculate it will go to infinite decimal number of places.
