From the exploration of new territories to the conquest of space, men have always endeavored to push back the frontiers of the known world and reveal the mysteries of the unknown. Man’s essential character lies in his strength and determination in pushing back his limits. The Name Resonant with history and mystery, is a link between past, present and future. Pi is the universal number, the transcendental number, the ruling number. Since Archimedes’ discovery of , more than 2000 years ago, has been the object of a ceaseless quest. This letter of the Greek alphabet is used in mathematics to express the constant ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. Today man is still seeking to establish ’s unlimited decimals. The Bottle Designed by Serge Mansau for Givenchy, the bottle is a study in purity. Its two sculpted backs, with their irregular density, modulate the amber tones of the fragrance. The bottle’s broad, full base gives it a masculine foundation and allure. To complete this construction, an innovative closing system crowns the bottle. The curved shape of the cap, in bronzecolored metal, symbolically evokes the name. 3. 1415926535897932384626433832795028841971693993751058209749445923078. . .

Copyright Audrey Weeks 2005 www. calculusinmotion. com CAN YOU FIND 402 digits of PI ? “Circle Digits” By Michael Keith For a time I stood pondering on circle sizes. The large computer mainframe quietly processed all of its assembly code. Inside my entire hope lay for figuring out an elusive expansion value: pi. Decimals expected soon. I nervously entered a format procedure. The mainframe processed the request. Error. I, again entering it, carefully retyped. This iteration gave zero error printouts in all - success. Intently I waited. Soon, roused by thoughts within me, appeared narrative mnemonics relating digit to verbiage! The idea appeared to exist but only in abbreviated fashion - little phrases typically. Pressing on I then resolved, deciding firmly about a sum of decimals to use - likely around four hundred, presuming the computer code soon halted! Pondering these ideas, words appealed to me. But a problem of zeros did exist. Pondering more, solution subsequently appeared. Zero suggests a punctuation element. Very novel! My thoughts were culminated. No, periods, I concluded. All residual marks of punctuation - zeros. First digit expansion answer then came before me. On examining some problems unhappily arose. That imbecillic bug! The printout I possessed showed four nine as foremost decimals. Manifestly troubling. Totally every number looked wrong. Repairing the bug took much effort. A pi mnemonic with letters truly seemed good. Counting of all the letters probably should suffice. Reaching for a record would be be helpful. Consequently, I continued, expecting a good final answer from computer. First number slowly 360 words - ignore periods displayed on the flat other punctuation = 0 words > 9 letters = 2 digits screen - 3. Good. Trailing digits apparently were right also. Now my memory scheme must probably be word for no. = digit implementable. The technique was chosen, elegant in scheme; by self reference a tale mnemonically helpful was assured.
