Wadim Zudilin will give a talk in our Algorithmic Combinatorics seminar
on February 4 (Tuesday, 11:00).
You are cordially invited to join.
Title: I prefer PI
Speaker: Prof. Wadim Zudilin, Radbound University, The Netherlands.
Date and Time: February 4, 2020; 11:00 a.m.
Location: RISC, Castle of Hagenberg.
Abstract: I will report on my joint work with Doron Zeilberger, about how
one can use experimental mathematics and symbolic algebra to measure
the irrationality of famous mathematical constants; in particular, about
world record for PI. There is still some room for a human touch, and this
involves some classical number theory (like "Freshman's Dream Identity")
and combinatorics of binomial sums. My talk will outline the story
