Day Number «PI»: what is known about the holiday
March 14 – an important holiday for physicists, mathematicians and all lovers of the exact Sciences. On this day, the scientific community celebrates the number “PI”, without which many of the great discoveries would have been impossible.
Its advent celebration obliged physics from San Francisco named Larry Shaw. He noticed that the writing dates March 14 – 3/14 – coincides with the first digits of PI. Going further, he found that the holiday should be noted at 13:59, that is, at 1:59 in 12-hour system. Thus, in the date of the holiday is hidden cipher in the number is 3,14159.
Even Pythagoras rightly said that our whole life is connected with numbers. The most popular number is the constant “PI”, which expresses the ratio of the perimeter of a circle to its diameter. Today, that number is used for geometrical, mathematical and physical calculations. Recently, scientists have proved that it even affects the structure of DNA.
The uniqueness of the PI is that the numbers after the comma are not subjected to any logic. Scientists say it — numerical embodiment of chaos. Through it, you can submit any constant. In the scientific world it is a common assertion that the number “PI” has its own mind and controls all the processes of the universe.
Over its thousand-year history there have been many attempts to unravel its mystery. In ancient times “PI” was considered equal to 3, however, Archimedes was able to determine it as a ratio of 22 to 7. Since then, scientists are trying to decode more symbols after the decimal point. So, scientists of the University of Tokyo were able to record a number to 12411-trillion mark!
People are not always aware of the importance of digital sequences PI after the decimal point. In Indiana far in 1897, proposed a law to round a number to 3.2. But mathematics Purdue University was able to defend the accuracy of the number, and today it is to them we owe the many discoveries.
International day of “PI” are especially popular in Europe and USA. American students are renowned for their love of unusual holidays, so on this day, many student communities are holding a Grand event.
Traditionally baked for the holiday “pipie” — a large round cake with the number “PI”. Around this pie is going to the entire company: toasts are pronounced, narrated interesting stories and mysteries associated with this number. The participants dance around the subject, symbolizing the number, solve mathematical puzzles. And every one of them dreams that will ever be able to unravel the mystery of the most mysterious numbers in the world.
