Note: The assertion that the digits of

pi are

normal is widely

conjectured but

unproven. (Also note that

random is not the same thing as

normal. Hate to

hairsplit, but the digits of pi are certainly not

random). It is important to note that the digits of certain other

irrational numbers appear to be normal to a

superficial inspection but in fact are not (such as

root three, for instance. at least,

so I've heard.)

An actual proof that the digits of pi are in fact normal would make big waves in the math circles.
