Thanks to judih's parallel programming poemshop! 9 Dec 2006 @ 20:09 by jmarc : It's all probability waves, you know Consider the following method of approximating PI 1. Inscribe a circle in a square 2. Randomly generate points in the square 3. Determine the number of points in the square that are also in the circle 4. Let r be the number of points in the circle divided by the number of points in the square 5. PI ~ 4 r 6. Note that the more points generated, the better the approximation 10 Dec 2006 @ 04:03 by judih : cool let the pi begin
