Swiss mathematicians have broken the world record for calculating the value of pi

Scientists at the Graub√ľnden University of Applied Sciences were able to calculate the exact value of pi and set a new world record: Their achievement will make it into the Guinness Book of World Records.

The complete calculation took 108 days and nine hours. The final number now consists of 62.8 trillion digits. The calculation was done by a supercomputer from the Data Analysis, Visualization and Simulation Center (DAViS). And the calculation itself took half as long as it did in 2019. The previous calculation stopped at 50 trillion digits.

The new sequence of numbers scientists have not yet disclosed. Only the last ten of them are known: Project manager Thomas Keller said that the application to the Guinness Book of World Records will be submitted in the next two weeks. The evaluation and publication of a world record usually takes one to four months.

Afghan mathematician Sidik Afghan has become famous for his mathematical predictions. Using mathematics, he has already been able to predict several important historical events.
