Friends of Pi Club
Welcome to the Friends of Pi Club!

The main objective of our club is to uphold, promote and celebrate the spirit of Pi!

The nature of the number Pi has preoccupied and bothered mathematicians since the beginning of mathematical history. The most important properties of Pi are its irrationality and transcendence, which were established in 1766 by Lambert and 1882 by Lindemann, respectively. In the twentieth century the focus has been on a different sort of question, that is whether Pi is normal or not.

Simply spoken, it's the question whether Pi is random. Do all digits occur equally often within Pi or will we possibly some time discover a place after which for example only 0's and 1's appear?

The Friends of Pi bring up a new question beyond the horizons of irrationality, transcendence and normality - by asking:

Is Pi aesthetic?
