There are quite a lot of points like this. Would it be possible to find new irrational numbers this way?

very nice, thank you for sharing

you can try to aproximate by choosing different angles around the m-set ( before you would need to find the farthest point in that direction) and check if some sequences do something similar interesting wink or if they all converge to pi ( which would be quite fascinating as well)

Extra footage. With some more explanation. yes they all converge to pi (which I did not expect).


Would it be possible to use perturbation to speed up this computation proces and would it be faster than other ways to compute pi?

The timing of these video's is great. At this moment I'm am playing around with these (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Difference_quotient). The second video made me understand them and their uses. smiley
