Pi Approximation

I discovered a nice approximation of involving the golden ratio while working on something.



( good to 7 decimal digits )

Written in a curious form:

Re: Pi Approximation

That's interesting. How did you come across this?

Re: Pi Approximation

Here is another interesting one

phi =1.6180339887 and 7*pi() / 5*e = 1.6180182897

3.1415926536*7 = 21.9911485751
2.7182818285 *5 = 13.5914091423

Seems to me that you are trying to find phi in Natural Constants - am I right ?

Re: Pi Approximation

There is another interesting property when you split the numbers into two digit groups

The prime factorization of 3327 is 3*1109, split into 33 and 27, 3 * 11=33 and 3*9=27

Re: Pi Approximation

You can replace phi^3 = phi^2+phi^1
You can move phi^3 to the top because phi^n = 1/PHI^n
Your 321 is the integer component of phi^12, for all odd powers you can get the integer component by phi^n-PHI^n (PHI=1/phi)
You can replace 321 with phi^13-PHI^13-200=521.0019193787-0.0019193787-200=321
And this is the distance between two very important primes in Quantum Physics 137 and 337.

Why are they so important ? They have a common property. You can swap the numbers and get another prime.
337, 373, 733 and each of these numbers can be written as the sum of two squares, which contain all the important quantum numbers.
137 is even more powerful. You get 3 primes that can be expressed as the sum of 2 squares and 3 composites that have only two prime factors.
So you have 6 Quantum number triplets.
You can also drop a number - drop 1 get 37 = prime, swap 73=prime
Drop 3 get 17 = prime, swap 71=prime, drop 7 get 13, swap 31= prime
The digit sum of 137 is 11 the prime index of 137 = 33

I have another question - are you decoding numbers found in the Pyramids of Giza ?

Actually I was investigating the natural appearance of the golden ratio in circles, and using that fact to approximate .

Their sum is a palindrome

Nop. Why do you ask?

Because the Golden Ratio turns up in these monuments, especially in the Kings Chamber.

Are you especially looking for an integer approximation ? If not you can use

phi = 2*cos(pi()/5) = 2*cos(36 degrees). You get a very interesting function with x = 2*cos(n*pi()/5)

All primes have either the value phi or -PHI and their products have the same values. You can actually use this property to factorize semi primes.

Re: Pi Approximation

A fraction of integers for , the golden ratio, can be approached by using Fibonacci's numbers, so that . As n, which is integer, increases, the approximation gets more and more accurate. Fibonacci's numbers can be found by Binet's formula.
You could also use Egyption fractions to approach .

What where the circles that lead to this approximation? I am working on a quantum model based on Platonic solids in an fcc lattice. The golden ratio
appears when you construct an Icosahedron inside an Octahedron (see Avatar). When you do that the Icosahedron points divide the Octahedron side
by the Golden ratio. I want to find out to which geometries your circles belong.
