π Day

piMarch 14 is the \pi day. Coincidentally, March 14 is also the birthday of Albert Einstein.

The best encyclopedic resource for anything related to mathematics is Wolfram MathWorld which is created, developed and nurtured by Eric Weisstein. I have tremendous respect for  encyclopedists. They are doing a great service to humanity.

Check out the following pages for information on \pi.

I mentioned the Euler rule few times. The number \pi is connected to the other fundamental numbers of mathematics through the Euler rule:

\displaystyle e^{i \pi } + 1 = 0
