 100 digits x $ 100 challenge

Members of these lists may be interested in looking at
  http://www.*-*-*.com/
for some interesting computational challenges.

The document begins thusly:

from SIAM News, Volume 35, Number 1
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.

Devon H. McCormick, CFA
