The square root of 2 has been calculated to 1,000,000 decimals on a large-scale digital computer and the result has been verified. The calculation was based on a specially developed algorithm for square roots which does not appear to have been used in previous computations of this type. 
A Special Algorithm to Approximate the Square Root of Positive Integer
The paper concerns a special approximate algorithm of the square root of the specific positive integer, which is built by the use of the property of positive integer solution of the Pell’s equation,
On square roots and their representations
After the rational operations of arithmetic, the extraction of square roots is probably the most frequently employed operation in computations. The need for efficient methods of performing the latter

It is correct to assert that the completion of each pattern by inclusion of its minor polyedra is uniquely determinate; so that 11 appears to be the total number of systems unlike in respect of numbers and contiguities.

1. We are ultimately concerned with extending the calculus of variations in the large to multiple integrals. The problem of the existence of minimal surfaces of unstable type contains many of the
