  • Abstract:

    Motivated by the desire to visualise large mathematical data sets, especially in number theory, we offer various tools for representing floating point numbers as planar walks and for quantitatively measuring their “randomness”.

    What to expect: some interesting ideas, many beautiful pictures (including a 108-gigapixel picture of π), and some easy-to-understand maths.
    What you won’t get: too many equations, difficult proofs, or any “real walking”.

    This is a joint work with David Bailey, Jon Borwein and Peter Borwein.
