A Hundred-dollar, Hundred-digit Challenge

Each October, a few new graduate students arrive

in Oxford to begin research for a doctorate in

numerical analysis. In their first term, working

in pairs, they take an informal course called

the Problem Solving Squad. Each week for six

weeks, I give them a problem, stated in a sentence

or two, whose answer is a single real number.

Their mission is to compute that number to as

many digits of precision as they can.
