π

pdf version

**The number π is related to the circle as well as the prime numbers.
**

Its relation to the circle:

The two parts of a circle

that can be easily measured

**are its perimeter ( ie: circumference ) and diameter.
**

If

C = the circumference

the ratio

C

2r

and

d = 2r = the diameter of any circle

IS ALWAYS THE SAME for ANY circle — whatever its size!

**The ratio, known as Archimedes Ratio, is given the symbol π
**

which means that for any circle

π =

C

2r

**To 2 decimals, π equals 3.14, and to 2222 decimals, it equals
**

**which is still only an approximation. An exact value for this ratio
**

would require an infinite stream of digits! Nobody knows how to do

this, so, people simply call this ratio π

SOME EQUATIONS which will give you π to as many decimals as you like are π 4 = 1 − π = 2 1 × 1 3 2 3 1 + 5 4 × 1 − 7 4 × 3 5 + × 1 9 6 5 1 − + . 4 Shortly afterwards. 7..1415969 is the best fraction involving less than 9 digits for π III. π is irrational. after the heavy lectures involving quantum mechanics! II. like √2. Leonhard Euler discovered a weird connection between π and the prime numbers. . .. . 5. . 11. √3. } with π2 6 = ( 1 2 1 – 1/2 ) ( × 1 2 1 – 1/3 ) ( × 1 2 1 – 1/5 ) . 355 113 = 3.. This connection was triggered with his 1735 discovery that π2 = 6 1 2 1 + 1 2 + 2 1 + 2 3 1 2 + . . he rewrote the above in terms of the primes { 2. but unlike these numbers. 3.14159265358979 reads as How I need a drink. 11 6 × 7 × . 13. .7 things about π I. .. cannot be formed algebraically IV... alcoholic of course. A π poem ( or piem ) that helps you remember 3. V.

5 For the case of s = 1.. Borwein.. 2s p p If one then multiplied together ( 1 1 ) ( × s 1 – 1/2 ) ( 1 × s 1 – 1/3 s 1 – 1/5 ) ... . Euler made a connection between π and the infinity of primes as follows: If p is any prime number { 2. 5.com − 2 8n + 4 − 1 8n + 5 − 1 8n + 6 ) . it follows that the number of primes must be infinite.. } and s = 1. Since any positive integer ≥ 2 is the product of primes. 2. . one would get 1 Zeta(s) = 1 + 1 + s s 2 1 + 3 s .... 1 1 – 1/3 ) ( × 1 1 – 1/5 ) . then 1 1 = 1 + s 1 – 1/p 1 + s + . we have Zeta(1) = 1 + = 1 + 2 1 3 1 ( 1 – 1/2 1 + 5 ) ( × .. . 3. Here is a formula for π discovered in 1996 by Bailey. VII.. which diverges.. Later on. 3.VI. and Plouffe ∞ π = Σ n = 0 Stephen Bankes 1 n 16 ( 4 8n + 1 stephenbankes@gmail.. which is the Harmonic Series.
