Help us and contribute to the pi(x) computation project.
Current computation is pi(x) for x = 1023
New : Version 1.6 is now available (computation time has been reduced in the B part, for a global saving of 15%, precomputation of chunks in the A, B and C parts is always done to optimize independance of chunks).
You just need a computer with a pentium or equivalent chip, turning on windows 95, 98 or NT. Several memory mode exists, so that even computers with only 30 Mo of free memory can help. No permanent connection to internet is needed.
Download the data files Achunks.txt, Bchunks.txt, Cchunks.txt, Dchunks.txt, and MasterRanges.txt (click on the right mouse bouton to download those text files directly) and put them in the same place where pix.exe is. These files contains parameters to compute chunks for the current computation.
Reserve your chunk(s) (see below).
Run pix.exe with your reserved ranges and send the small resulting files to email@example.com. Your name will be added in the contributor list soon after the resulting files have been sent.
Reservation has been improved since the computation of pi(1023) :
