Dear folks, Our latest record was established as the followings; Declared record: 68,719,470,000 decimal digits Two independent calculation based on two different algorithms generated 68,719,476,736 (=2^36) decimal digits of pi and comparison of two generated sequences matched 68,719,476,693 decimal digits, e.g., 43 decimal digits difference. Then we are declaring 68,719,470,000 decimal digits as the new world record.

Programs were written by Mr. Daisuke TAKAHASHI, a Research Associate at our Computer Centre. CPU used was HITACHI SR8000 at the Computer Centre, University of Tokyo. Half of total CPU, e.g. 64PE's, were definitely used through single job parallel processing for both of programs run.
