Solutions to the SIAM $100 Challenge

Robert Israel, Department of Mathematics, UBC

The SIAM 100-Dollar, 100-Digit Challenge consisted of ten numerical
problems posted in the January/February 2002 issue of SIAM News.   Gaston
Gonnet and I formed one of the 20 teams who won first place by finding all
the answers correct to 10 digits.  I will discuss the solutions of
several of the problems.
