...and continuing updates
"The story of pi reflects the most seminal, the most serious and sometimes the silliest aspects of mathematics. A surprising amount of the most important mathematics and a significant number of the most important mathematicians have contributed to its unfolding directly or otherwise.
Pi is one of the few concepts in mathematics whose mention evokes a response of recognition and interest in those not concerned professionally with the subject. It has been a part of human culture and the educated imagination for more than twenty five hundred years. The computation of Pi is virtually the only topic from the most ancient stratum of mathematics that is still of serious interest to modern mathematical research. And to pursue this topic as it developed throughout the millennia is to follow a thread through the history of mathematics that winds through geometry, analysis and special functions, numerical analysis, algebra and number theory. It offers a subject which provides mathematicians with examples of many current mathematical techniques as well as a palpable sense of their historical development." The above passage is taken from the introduction to "Pi : A Source Book" by L. Berggren, J. Borwein and P. Borwein. It is a large collection of papers on pi and will appear with Springer-Verlag sometime in 1997. Much additional material is available in the 1986 Wiley volume

- Michael Stifel (1544) There is an even better (albeit much longer) quote about pi that I found from the same source. This page is dedicated to Ludolph Van Ceulen Are you wondering why there's no Dilbert cartoon here? For offline fun, read The Joy of Pi by David Blatner or go see Pi: The Movie Now you can even SMELL the part of pi by wearing Pi: The Perfume Pi. It's a number with some character, transcendental, irrational, difficult to pin down. The history of pi is fascinating, and I would find a web page detailing the events and intrigue surrounding pi a worthy effort. (Wow! Eve Andersson, pi watchdog extraordinaire, has informed me that such a page actually exists! Pi through the ages is the happenin' pi locale.)

4. The Pi-Search Page

The Pi-Search Page A result of taking people too seriously, the Pi Searcher lets you search for any string of digits (up to 120 of them) in the first 100 million digits of Pi . You can also show any substring of Pi. Search For: See digits starting at position
  • - You can now display any substring in Pi with the Pi Searcher. Thanks to the people who suggested this!
  • (Pi Day 2001) - The pi searcher now provides 100 million digits, made possible by the new box and the compressed searching.
  • - The Pi Searcher now runs on the box that ArosNet Colocation Services is hosting for me, and just got a bit faster. You probably won't notice the difference, but it's about 4x faster now that it's the only computationally intensive thing running on this machine.
  • - Compressed the digits two per byte, and wrote a custom search routine. The pi searcher is now nearly as fast as a linear search can be, and uses less space than before.

A history of Pi
A chronology of Pi History Topics Index
A little known verse of the Bible reads And he made a molten sea, ten cubits from the one brim to the other: it was round all about, and his height was five cubits: and a line of thirty cubits did compass it about. (I Kings 7, 23) The same verse can be found in II Chronicles 4, 2. It occurs in a list of specifications for the great temple of Solomon, built around 950 BC and its interest here is that it gives p = 3. Not a very accurate value of course and not even very accurate in its day, for the Egyptian and Mesopotamian values of = 3.125 and 10 = 3.162 have been traced to much earlier dates: though in defence of Solomon's craftsmen it should be noted that the item being described seems to have been a very large brass casting, where a high degree of geometrical precision is neither possible nor necessary. There are some interpretations of this which lead to a much better value. The fact that the ratio of the circumference to the diameter of a circle is constant has been known for so long that it is quite untraceable. The earliest values of p including the 'Biblical' value of 3, were almost certainly found by measurement. In the Egyptian
