The secrets of Pi

The mathematical constant π is an irrational real number, approximately equal to 3.14159, which is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter in Euclidean geometry, and has many uses in mathematics, physics, and engineering. It is also known as Archimedes’ constant (not to be confused with an Archimedes number) and as Ludolph’s number. (from wikipedia)

Kalam kebir???? I knew about Pi from the school days, but I heard very strange info about it, and surprisingly I read it in the Da Vince Code, the famous thriller by Dan Brown.

Check what I found here. “In Chapter 20, Langdon recalls a lecture he gave at Harvard on the Fibonacci numbers and the closely related constant that is his favorite number: the golden ratio, also known as the divine proportion. In his lecture, Langdon makes a series of amazing claims about the prevalence of the divine proportion in life and nature, and I suspect many readers tacitly assume most of it is fiction. That is not the case. As with the novel’s many religious, historical, and art references, some of the things Langdon says about the golden ratio are false—or at least stretch the truth. But some are correct. ”

Definitely I should ead more about this, I really don’t understand much about Pi and Fibonacci numbers, ut it’s never too late, right?
