The number represented by pi (π) is used in calculations whenever something round (or nearly so) is involved, ...

It was just 9:26:53 p.m. on March 14, 2015, and I have officially celebrated the second transcendent moment of Pi Day, the first being that same time that morning.

It turns out this property is not completely unique to Pi -- a large class of numbers can find their digits similarly embedded into a particular day. But Pi is a special irrational number that has driven historically important results.

Yup, 3/14/15 at 9:26:53 a.m. is "pi time." (Actually, it's the start of "pi time," since the next two digits are 59.) So get those pies ready, because on Saturday morning you'll have a once-in-a-lifetime chance to live through pi.

This weekend the NYPD police precinct is hosting a graffiti and street art show, and the public is welcome to see every floor completely swimming in a...

In the wake of the global growth of interest in art in the streets, one form of tourism that may soon be blowing up could be graffiti excursions, street art sightseeing, or even mural journeying.

In honor of everyone's favorite irrational number, Huffington Magazine's Infographic Art Editor, Troy Dunham created the image below. We recommend enj...

Relax, everyone. Pi isn't that great. At least that's the word from "mathemusician" Vihart, whose new YouTube video was posted just in time for Pi Day...

Originally a lighthearted gag where folks walked around San Francisco's Exploratorium in funny hats with pies and the like, by the turn of the century Pi Day was a major educational event in North American schools, garnering plenty of press.

Fresh off his lecture at the 92nd Street Y in Manhattan, 10-year-old college student Tanishq Abraham stopped by HuffPost Live to talk all things pi, a...

In fact, Twitter ensures that we're losing our need or even ability to spell correctly. Our calculating software ensures we don't have to do mental arithmetic or physically balance our bank ledgers, anymore.

Π (or People's Intelligence) will make use of SMS or Speak to Tweet technologies to establish a conversation with victims and witnesses of mass atrocities, providing them with guidance and actionable information that will facilitate early warnings and targeted assistance.

To begin with, we have to be careful what we mean by "random." Clearly pi is not "random" in the strict sense, because individual digits are certainly not random but mathematically fixed. Perhaps a better and easier question is whether pi is "normal base 10."

The fascination with Pi, the most famous number in human history, is as limitless as its own digits. The obsession with Pi is more mysterious than Pi itself.

The fascination with π is so universal that in 1998 film director Darren Aronofsky even created a psychological thriller with that title. Here I want to tell only a few more π stories that are perhaps less known outside the circle of true aficionados.

Thanks the the magic ways of the Internet, Pi Day (March 14 -- pretty sure you can figure that one out) has unofficially become the day that food blog...

Today is March 14, also known as 3.14, also known as Pi Day. Geeks around the world will unite today to celebrate one of the most unique and beautiful constants in all of mathematics.

Congresswoman Martha Roby (R-Ala.) is sponsoring HR 205: The Geometric Simplification Act, declaring the Euclidean mathematical constant of pi to be precisely 3 in an effort to improve test scores.
