Disordered Lattices: Normal Modes and Localization by John A. Scales | Methods for Calculating Pi by Ken Albertson
Description

Our graduate Symbolic Modeling class, taught by Dr. Willy Hereman, was assigned the task of comparing various methods of calculating the value of pi using Mathematica. The materials in this note could be used to enliven the discussion of pi at the middle school and high school levels as well as at the college level.
