Google employee Emma Haruka Iwao has calculated the number PI with an accuracy of up to 31.4 trillion decimal places. About it writes “bi-Bi-si”.
It has thus set a new world record. Past achievement was 22 trillion digits.
The calculations used 25 virtual machines smoothly worked for 121 days. The final result took 170 terabytes. To read aloud it would take 332 thousand years.
In 2015, physicist Carl Hagen and mathematician Tamar Friedman from the University of Rochester in new York have derived a formula for the number PI of quantum mechanics. In their work the researchers used a variational principle in the limit of high energies to determine the energy levels of the hydrogen atom.
The number PI is a mathematical constant and is defined as the ratio of the circumference to the length of its diameter.
