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

  1. 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 :biggrin:

    Took care of it.
     
  5. 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.
