No, I haven't read the book.  But I fully intend to read "Life of Pi" before the movie comes out. The production value and casting sound interesting and of course the story alone sounds fascinating.  I might just give it a try. At least it looks good...

enter image description here 	 I like this one because it shows that Archimedes really does have a problem: he has to explain why his limiting process (circumscribed and inscribed n-gons) approaches π in the limit, while this one doesn't. There is an explanation, because the technique Archimiese used does actually work, but I don't think the explanation was available to Archimedes. They key point is that although the zigzag converges pointwise to the circle, the slopes of the segments don't…
