This article gives a brief history of the analysis and computation of the mathematical constant $\pi = 3.14159 \ldots$, including a number of the formulas that have been used to compute $\pi$ through the ages. Recent developments in this area are then discussed in some detail, including the recent computation of $\pi$ to over six billion decimal digits using high-order convergent algorithms, and a newly discovered scheme that permits arbitrary individual hexadecimal digits of $\pi$ to be… Expand
