CALCULATING PI - press for free download. | Back to top Back to top
This software includes archpi.exe, chinpi.exe, leibnitz.exe, and newton.exe together with the corresponding Borland C/C++ 3.1 source code modules for calculating pi by the method of Archimedes, the Chinese method, by the method of Leibnitz, or by the method of Newton. The most rapidly converging method is due to Archimedes, involving inscribing a circle between interior and exterior polygons. The software contains explanations and it is entertaining to observe the relative rates of convergence.
