Approximate pi with scilab
Approximate pi with scilab
What do people think is a good way to calculate an approximation of pi with scilab? I don't necessarily need the code, I can come up with that. I just need some ideas of what are good ways to approximate it.

Not sure is this is what you are looking for, but I found another gem in www.triusinc.com/techs. The files is Estimating_pi__scilab_Karahalios.pdf and here is the whole URL:www.triusinc.com/techs/Estimating_pi__s ... halios.pdf.
And I am uploading a copy attached to this message. I hope this answers your question.

That's great! A lot more than I was looking for (I was only looking for direction), but I'll take it. And, it came justintime. Thank you so very much.BLarson wrote: ↑Wed Feb 14, 2018 11:34 pmNot sure is this is what you are looking for, but I found another gem in www.triusinc.com/techs.

Re: Approximate pi with scilab
Yeah, I found all sorts of gems in www.triusinc.com/techs. Apparently, one of the TRIUS partners had spent a lot of time in technical fields/industries and has been a fairly prolific writer of common sense technical papers. I recommend that people download and read some of the papers.
Re: Approximate pi with scilab
Yup, that TRIUS partner would most likely be Paris Karahalios (based on the filename you posted). Worked with him many years ago (35+) when he was still in the nuclear field. Prolific author and keen ability to come up with math and computer models for pretty much everything.
