Caption: Pi gravity collapse representation, illustration. 49 instances of the first three digits of Pi collapsing into a single mass. In this simulation, the digits are assigned mass and their movements modelled subject to gravity. Pi (the sixteenth letter of the Greek alphabet) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent the constant of the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. It is a crucial element of periodic functions and is found in many formulae in trigonometry and geometry. The value of this ratio is approximately 3.14159. It has been calculated to over one trillion digits beyond its decimal point, though as an irrational and transcendental number it continues infinitely without repetition or pattern.
