Google celebrated Pi Day with special Doodle

Google celebrated Pi Day with special Doodle

Mathematicians have calculated more than one trillion decimal places beyond the standard 3.14, but the irrational number is such that it continues to infinity.

Google Doodle celebrates the 30th anniversary of pi. March 14 (3.14) is celebrated annually as "Pi Day", the approximation day of the mathematical constant π (3.14159265358979).

Pi, denoted by the Greek letter "π", has been part of human knowledge for millennia, but it wasn't until 1988 that physicist Larry Shaw organized what is now recognized as the first "Pi Day" celebration at the San Francisco Exploratorium science museum.

Pi is a fundamental element of many mathematical fields, but most significantly Geometry. The doodle has been created by award-winning pastry chef Dominique Ansel. Ansel describes the process of cooking itself as a scientific process where one has to be precise, keep in mind volume and weight in a video to celebrate the Pi day.

Many people have fun trying to remember the sequence of Pi, and the current world record belongs to Suresh Kumar Sharma from India.

Did you know that there is Pi language?

Pi is a mathematical constant, meaning it isn't changed by the size of the numbers it's used to equate, and it is irrational, meaning it has an infinite number of digits that never repeat. It is the ratio between a circle's circumference to it's diameter. Although it involves a fair amount of deftness and accuracy, it is possible. The website also has a record of the problems from previous years.

March 14 is celebrated as Pi Day when the date lines up in the numbers of the famous constant. The challenge, which was created by the Education Office of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California, is now in its fifth year. The topics this year include calculations for Martian earthquakes, helium rain on Jupiter, and the rotation rate of the first interstellar visitor ever discovered, asteroid 'Oumuamua.
