# What function was used for current record of decimal places of EM cnst

 P: 553 The record for the number of decimal places of accuracy for the Euler-Mascheroni constant stands at just over 29,000,000,000 decimal places set by Alexander J. Yee & Raymond Chan back in 2009. Does anyone know what function they used to set this record? ***EDIT*** On further searching the record now stands at 31,000,000,000 decimal places, Wow! How do we update wikipedia? :P ***EDIT*** Make that 119,377,958,182

I looked through those before, it seems the fastest converging of the bunch is the one done by Flajolet and Vardi in '96 although I do not understand how the 'n' is used so could be wrong.

And yet another reason why I love PF.

I was on his site not too long ago, I have no idea how I miss these things...
Thanks for the link, it has exactly what I was asking for!
