Languages and complexity, Part I: why I love Anki2024-01-02 19:47
Updated: 2024-05-14 02:22
Lately I have not been as active in GNU (https://www.gnu.org) as I would have liked—which I plan to change. Apart from work I was busy with happy family life next to E.; and, I guess, with contemplating the dismal state of the West as it descends further and further into tyranny amid the general indifference. Maybe in part seeking solace from the news I focused with renewed intensity on my hobby, studying the Russian language for no reason much more practical than my love for Nineteenth-Century novels. I have heard more than one Russian teacher vocally disapproving of literature as [...] Read more

Happy pi approximation day 20132013-07-21 12:34
Updated: 2014-07-21 21:14
The fraction 22/7 has been known since antiquity as a simple rational approximation of pi. The fraction decimal expansion is 3.(142857); since pi is about 3.141592653589793, the approximation has three correct digits. Of course nowadays we can compute much better approximations with computers, and billions of digits are known: <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Approximationsofπ> is a nice review also explaining some efficient computation methods. For example if you want to obtain a lot of pi digits in a short time you may like the series by Ramanujan, yielding very good approximations even with a small number of terms; but that’s not the point now.
