is eπ√163.
Interesting because it is almost an integer, and we can calculate it on the DM42. As it has 18 digits to the left of the decimal point, the DM42 is one of the few things able to calculate it.
(and yes, I blew my entry  Thomas has it correct).

Re: Ramanujan's constant...
I think he meant exp(pi*sqrt(163)), not e*pi*sqrt(163)
Re: Ramanujan's constant...
Thanks, Thomas.
@Martin: How shall I know what you meant if I can only read what you wrote?
Anyway, I calculated what Thomas suggested on the WP43S and got
262 537 412 640 768 743.999 999 999 999 247 4. Almost an integer, almost ...

The earth is flat. It just appears round because it is massive and curves spacetime.

Re: Ramanujan's constant...
You won't find this socalled 'Ramanujan constant' in the German part of the internet for reasons mentioned in the article you linked. Actually, it should be called Hermite's constant instead ... but his marketing was inferior to Martin Gardner's.H2X wrote: ↑Mon Apr 20, 2020 8:39 amGoogle it?

Re: Ramanujan's constant...
I hate it when that happens. Honestly. When Google  or other superficially "intelligent" search engines give me a different result than other people, for the sake of ... personalization?
