The third technique, based on the transformation theory of elliptic integrals, provides the algorithms for the most recent set of computations. The most recent records are due separately to Gosper, Bailey, and Kanada. Gosper in 1985 calculated over 17 million digits (in fact over 17 million terms of the continued fraction) using a carefully orchestrated evaluation of Sum 1.
