He really couldn't go those extra 10,000 digits to make it an even 2.7T digits, huh?

 2010-01-06, 15:14 #4 biwema     Mar 2004 3·127 Posts I assume he calculated 2.7 trillion digits, but had to remove some due to rounding errors during computation. (It is necessary to keep the full precision from beginning) In such situations i always compute some million digits more. Just in case someone asks: "And what is the 10000000001 digit?"

Are there seven consecutive 7s somewhere within the decimal expansion? What is its position? What about that for eight consecutive 8s, nine consecutive 9s?

If you look at the accompanying text on that link, more specially the FAQ, you will see that the whole endeavour was not about some more digits of PI but about algorithms Why did you do this ?. There is also a paper (Technical notes.)

Yes; indeed

http://www.hpcs.cs.tsukuba.ac.jp/~daisuke/pi.html

(yes, that page describes an earlier computation to 2.5e12 digits)

there are thirteen consecutive eights.

You could download http://gmplib.org/pi-with-gmp.html and compute a billion digits for yourself, which certainly will get you the first occurrence of 7{7} at index 3346228 and 8{8} at index 46663520; not sure about 9{9}, whose index is >2e8, unless you have access to a computer with 32GB of memory.

http://mathworld.wolfram.com/PiDigits.html may also be of interest.

That means every digit appears 2700 times in a group of 9. (a group of 10 counts lnke 2 groups of 9)

 2010-01-07, 14:32 #11 biwema     Mar 2004 3·127 Posts Actually all sequences about consecutive digits of pi could be extended to 12 or 13 with the new calculation. http://mathworld.wolfram.com/PiDigits.html
