Colloquium: Pie & Basic introduction to Real Analysis- Dr. Vikas Bist, PU Chandigarh

Being an irrational number, π cannot be expressed as a common fraction (equivalently, its decimal representation never ends and never settles into a permanently repeating pattern). Still, fractions such as 22/7 and other rational numbers are commonly used to approximate π. The digits appear to be randomly distributed. In particular, the digit sequence of π is conjectured to satisfy a specific kind of statistical randomness, but to date, no proof of this has been discovered. Also, π is a transcendental number; that is, it is not the root of any polynomial having rational coefficients. This transcendence of π implies that it is impossible to solve the ancient challenge of squaring the circle with a compass and straightedge.
After delivering a lecture on the topic the students discussed there queries with Dr. Vikas Bist and Dr. Bist motivate the students for preparation of competition exams like NBHM, UGC-NET & GATE etc.
