The SIAM 100Dollar, 100Digit Challenge
The Challenge
In the January/February 2002 issue of SIAM News, and later in Science,
a
contest was formulated. The contest consisted of ten problems, each
having
a single real number as the solution. For every ten digits that were
determined
correctly 10 points could be won, with a maximum of 100 points in
total.

points.
On this page we present our solutions to the 10 problems.
