Pi Day

Tuesday 14 March 2006 at 6:52 pm | In Articles | 1 Comment

MathForge (a superb maths blog, worth subscribing to its newsfeed) claims that people all over the world are celebrating Pi Day since today is 3/14 which consists of the first 3 digits of the decimal expansion of \pi. Not in the UK and other countries where the date is 14/3.

I propose an [i]e[/i] day to be celebrated on 2nd July all over the world :)
