During our celebratory Creative Commons dinner a few weeks back, Cory and Aaron were arguing about the randomness of numbers that come after the first billion numbers after the decimal in pi (3.14nextbillionnumbershere...then what dammit?) (Specifically, they were arguing about whether the distribution of digits in a non-repeating number is also Gaussian -- the answer is no, because of distributions such as 1001110011001010 -- Aaron won :-)
At one point, Matthew Haughey commented: "Oh my god, they're arguing over pi over dessert."Posted by Lisa at June 20, 2002 10:34 AM | TrackBack
