For the Greek letter, see Pi (letter). For o ther uses of pi, p, and ?, see Pi (disambiguation).

It has been repres ented by the Greek letter "p" since the mid-18th century, though it is also some times written as "pi" (/pa?/). p is an irrational number, which means that it ca nnot be expressed exactly as a ratio of any two integers (fractions such as 22/7 are commonly used to approximate p; no fraction can be its exact value); conseq uently, its decimal representation never ends and never settles into a permanent repeating pattern. The digits appear to be randomly distributed, although no pr oof of this has yet been discovered. p is a transcendental number a number that is not the root of any nonzero polynomial having rational coefficients. The tran scendence of p implies that it is impossible to solve the ancient challenge of s quaring the circle with a compass and straight-edge. For thousands of years, mathematicians have attempted to extend their understand ing of p, sometimes by computing its value to a high degree of accuracy. Before the 15th century, mathematicians such as Archimedes and Liu Hui used geometrical techniques, based on polygons, to estimate the value of p. Starting around the 15th century, new algorithms based on infinite series revolutionized the computa tion of p, and were used by mathematicians including Madhava of Sangamagrama, Is aac Newton, Leonhard Euler, Carl Friedrich Gauss, and Srinivasa Ramanujan. In the 20th and 21st centuries, mathematicians and computer scientists discovere d new approaches that when combined with increasing computational power extended the decimal representation of p to, as of late 2011, over 10 trillion (1013) di gits. [1] Scientific applications generally require no more than 40 digits of p, so the primary motivation for these computations is the human desire to break r ecords, but the extensive calculations involved have been used to test supercomp uters and high-precision multiplication algorithms. Because its definition relates to the circle, p is found in many formulae in tri gonometry and geometry, especially those concerning circles, ellipses, or sphere s. It is also found in formulae from other branches of science, such as cosmolog y, number theory, statistics, fractals, thermodynamics, mechanics, and electroma gnetism. The ubiquitous nature of p makes it one of the most widely known mathem atical constants, both inside and outside the scientific community: Several book s devoted to it have been published; the number is celebrated on Pi Day; and rec ord-setting calculations of the digits of p often result in news headlines. Seve ral people have endeavored to memorize the value of p with increasing precision, leading to records of over 67,000 digits.
