The Computation of Pi by Archimedes (Scripts) Publisher's description
from Bill McKeeman
Before there was floating point
Before there was floating point, or a way to write zero, or algebraic notation, Archimedes bounded the value of pi by estimating the perimeter of regular polygons inside and outside the circle. His computation is repeated and explained here using MATLAB.
