in thread the secret of PI


Not as if it's much consolation, but a statistical analysis shows that both pi and e1 have each digit (0..9) appear one tenth of the time. It's not a rigorous mathematical proof of normality, but it shows that such a proof shouldn't be able to be disproved, which is important in itself...

nuf evah,
