|Xavier Gourdon and Pascal Sebah|
|How famous mathematical constants were computed in the past, and current ways of obtaining them: pi, e, the logarithmic constant, square root of 2, Euler's constant, and Apery's constant. Also algorithms (arbitrary precision computation; FFT based multiplication of large numbers; Binary splitting method; Inverse and n-th root of large numbers; Newton's iteration), programs for computing constants, number theory, and miscellaneous (quotes, the gamma function, the Riemann zeta function, and more).|
