Researchers at the Graubünden University of Applied Sciences in Switzerland have broken the record for computing pi.
Recall that Pi is the ratio of the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter, with an infinite number of digits following the decimal point.
This achievement is planned to be included in the Guinness Book of Records. Scientists have not published the complete sequence of numbers, but showed the last of them – 7817924264. The previous record allowed setting 50 trillion digits after the decimal point.
A team from Switzerland stated that the experience of calculating the number of pi can also be used in other areas:
- RNA analysis,
- simulation of fluid dynamics,
- text analysis.
