Cronut Maker Rolls Out Google's Pi Day Doodle

Google Doodle marks 30th year of Pi Day the date that takes its digits from mathematics constant

The value of Pi equals about 3.14159 in the usual decimal notation, the constant being one of the most important in mathematics and physics.

Today is March 14th, otherwise know as National Pi Day!

Pi represents the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter.

Pi Day was first celebrated by physicist Larry Shaw at the Exploratorium in San Francisco nearly 30 years ago and incidentally in 2009, the United States House of Representatives voted in favour of designating 3/14 as Pi Day. Nowadays, Pi Day is often associated with food - perhaps pizza, or a meat pie, but in this case, a classic American apple pie with a French twist.

The doodle was created with help from Dominique Ansel, the pastry chef behind the Cronut, and leads to a search for "Pi Day".

The value of pi is 22/7 and today even school children use the value to calculate the circumference and area of a circle by substituting the value of pi in the formulas.

This year Google made a decision to mark the 30th occurrence of this event with a nod to "the number's delicious sounding name". Because its most elementary definition relates to the circle, pi is found in many formulae in trigonometry and geometry, especially those concerning circles, ellipses, and spheres. Shaw organized the first celebration of π at the San Francisco Exploratorium science museum and of course chose March 14 because it corresponds with 3.14.

The symbol was first used in 1706 by William Jones.

Pi is a mathematical constant, meaning it isn't changed by the size of the numbers it's used to equate, and it is irrational, meaning it has an infinite number of digits that never repeat. Currently, Pi has more than 13 trillion known decimals. The Pilish dialect was invented, in which the numbers of letters in successive words matched the digits of pi.
