End Digit Of Pi

Recommended Posts

I think this is where that came from.... complete and utter cowpoo ;)

A team of Japanese researchers at a leading national university have upended the entire scientific world when it unexpectedly calculated the value of pi to 1.3511 trillion places, which is apparently the final digit in this number previously thought to be infinite.

 

"We don't understand," said visibly panicked project team member Makoto Kudo. "We were just trying to set a new world record for most digits calculated. We had no idea it would run out. Honestly!"

 

Researchers at Tokyo University, led by Professor Yasumasa Kanada, calculated the value for pi with a Hitachi supercomputer for over 500 hours in April. They were seeking to break their own world record. The Hitachi supercomputer is capable of 2 trillion calculations per second.

 

"We just wanted to get to 1.5 trillion places," said Kudo. "We intended no harm."

 

Pi is a number expressing the ratio of the circumference of a perfect circle to its diameter. As there are no perfect circles or spheres in nature (since matter is composed of atoms and is therefore not smooth) the continued extension of pi has long been seen as a harmless exercise of computer power. However, its symbolic value to the scientific world is profound.

 

"Probably no symbol in mathematics has evoked as much mystery, romanticism, misconception, and human interest as the number pi," said David Blatner, author of The Joy of Pi. "It is the ultimate limitless vista serving as inspiration to mathematicians the world over. With our world so rudely circumscribed, how are we to continue? What point is there in going on if even pi has a limit?"

 

Kanada's team has volunteered to continue building on pi by generating random numbers, but the mathematical community seems to feel it wouldn't be the same. Some refuse to accept the findings, although Kanada's team has run the calculation three times.

 

"We thoroughly condemn the slanderous allegation that pi has a limit," said Rolf Umbridge of the Ancient and Honorable Society of Pi Watchers. "We are so incensed by the very notion that we hereby officially censure the University of Tokyo. Dr. Kanada, you are dead to me, sir!"

 

Most, however, do not blame Kanada or his team, acknowledging that someone would have discovered that pi is finite sooner or later.

 

"Pi showed me the power of numbers," said UCLA graduate student in mathematics Alan Prentiss wistfully. "It was that episode of Star Trek where Captain Kirk exorcizes the evil energy entity from the ship's computer by commanding the computer to calculate the value of pi, which used up all the computer's memory. I was just a kid, but I thought - wow, math can be used to fight evil. But now I realize that was just a fantasy, a sham: the computer would have finished the job, and the Enterprise would have been lost. It's profoundly disillusioning."

President Bush this afternoon officially nominated Bert, his national security adviser and a longtime confidante, to replace Colin Powell as secretary of state.

 

"The secretary of state is America's face to the world, and in Bert's pointy yellow head and orange nose, the world will see the strength, grace and decency of our country," Bush said. "At the same time, his heavy black unibrow will broadcast America's determination and force of character."

 

If his nomination is confirmed, Bert would become the first Muppet ever to serve as secretary of state.

 

"In my 35 years of experience in foreign affairs, in and out of government and Sesame Street, I have come to know the men and women of the Department of State," Bert said, adding he had "the highest respect and admiration" for the counting and alphabet skills of the department's employees.

 

"During the last four years, I've relied on Bert's counsel, benefited from his experience and relied on his sound and steady judgment and fashion sense," Bush said in announcing the nomination Tuesday at the White House. "Plus, Bert taught me to appreciate bottle caps and pigeons. That's a gift beyond measure."

 

Bert, 35, was an educational consultant and performer on the long-running children's program Sesame Street from 1969 through 1999, when he was tapped by the Bush campaign to reach out to the "conservative, sensible" community in New York. Following Bush's election in 2000, Bert was appointed national security adviser to the surprise of many.

 

"You know, Bert's always been focused on the details," said former co-worker Ernie, who still serves as an executive producer on Sesame Street. "He's not really a 'big-picture' kinda guy. I don't question his integrity, but I do wonder if he's the right person to succeed Colin Powell."

 

There are also questions about whether Bert's international image will have the same credibility as his widely respected predecessor. For some people abroad, the humorless yellow Muppet's glowering countenance has been a poster-child for the evils of the American system. In fact, "evil Bert" is a recurring image in many anti-American demonstrations around the world.

 

Despite these concerns, though, Bush says he has "full confidence" that the diminutive, wing-tip wearing Muppet can appropriately represent American interests abroad.

 

"Bert and I are very much alike," said Bush. "I know that, when he walks into those meetings with world leaders, it would be just like me being there. I could not represent American interests better myself."

Pi is an irrational number there can't be a limit on it!

 

Also the speed of light is altered by the the surroundings, its to do with the theory of relativity.

lol! The 49,999 and 50,000 digits are 69! :lol: :lol: Its a conspiracy!!!!

 

 

 

But alas! You are all wrong!! For I am the last digit of pie!!!!

that's retarded. there cannot be an ending number to pi. it's an irrational number and NEVER ends. the computer had a slip-up. that's impossible.

It is my belief that there is an infinately small space between any two points, so that one could never say with 100% positivity that "This is the correct and absolute value."

 

Sure, it may be accurate and precise when we measure it with our tools, but, the our tools are not absolute; nothing is absolute.

 

So, rocket propulsion or even the speed of light is quite slow when you think about how large the universe is; we will literally need to bend space and time to form something like a "wormhole" for space travel to be extremely "practical" and then, if we do build wormholes, we need them to connect, and without a "practical" means of travelling through space to find point B to connect the original wormhole too, we may never get very far; but, we do have quite awhile to do so ;).

 

Where the heck did that all come from...?

Someone mentioned something about a precise rocket trajectory.. so I went crazy.

Well, if anyone can get the right libraries, a bit of C/++ can solve it for us... maybe an algorithm will help:

 

#include <iostream>

long long long long long i = 1000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000
long long long long long j 1
double double double double Pi = (22 / 7)

int main(void)
{
    do
     {
         cout << "Numbar is: " << Pi <<; ++j }
    while ( j < i )
    
return (0);
}

 

 

Fix up the variables and maybe the loop, and let it run on some NASA uber computer for a few months. if it EVER completes itself, then I guess that Pi has an ending digit. Otherwise, 22/7(aka Pi) will forever be infinite. Sorry Albert.

pi is the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter, and as such, will continue non-ending since it's an irrational number... if you really must know, the answer is 42 ;)

Darn it!!! You beat me to it. :lol:
