Number theorists have been interested in the characteristics
of numerical constants like
These numbers, real irrationals, are composed of an unending
string of digits in a specific but seemingly random order. As
methods and traditional analysis have revealed very little, it has been
proposed that the natural visual capacities of human perception be
to search for complex correlations in the numerical distributions.
