Experimental Mathematics Seminar

Ramanujan series for 1/Pi. Automatic proofs.

Jesús Guillera, University of Zaragoza

Location:  Zoom
Date & time: Thursday, 27 April 2023 at 5:00PM - 6:00PM

Abstract: We develop a method for proving automatically Ramanujan series for 1/Pi using modular equations. For the case of alternating series these equations are of a much lower degree than those required in the methods of other authors. For example, it was thought that a complete explicit proof of the Chudnovskys' fastest series for 1/Pi would require a supercomputer. We will show that this is not true
