Jorg Arndt, Jarg Arndt, Christoph Haenel avec Pi Unleashed [With CD-ROM]
In the 4,000-year history of research into Pi, results have never been as prolific as present. This book describes, in easy-to-understand language, the latest and most fascinating findings of mathematicians and computer scientists in the field of Pi. Attention is focused on new methods of high-speed computation.
From the reviews:
"The book is sprinkled with many gems … . The book is a treasure of information and is fun to read … . I loved this book. In fact, I’ve pretty much run out of superlatives … . I would recommend it to anyone who is just curious about pi, or about large-precision arithmetic in general, as well as to the professional who is looking to break the next N-digit barrier. Who knows, perhaps a reader will be inspired to invent a faster yet method for such algorithms."
