Mathematical constants

If for some reason, you wanted the values of certain mathematical constants to a few billion digits, numberworld.org might be a site for you. Well known ones like [tex]\sqrt{2}, \frac{\sqrt{5}-1}{2}, e, \pi, \log(2), \log(10), \zeta(3), \gamma [/tex] are all there to billions of digits. Not much is written about the what and the how of the computations so you’ll have to take the author’s word for it. Incidentally do not make the mistake of confusing A.J. Yee, computer scientist and author of the website with A.J. Yee, the combinatorist.
