  8. Pi Squared over Six - Clive Tooth
    "This value, (pi^2)/6, seems to crop up quite often in mathematics. I think that most of these occurrences can be traced back to the fact that it is the sum of the reciprocals of the squares of the positive integers...." See the first 500 decimal places ...more>>
