Sequences in the expansion of pi

A NEW RECORD is set in the calculation of PI.
Declared record : 51.539.600.000 decimal digits
The Brouwer-Heyting Sequence
Table of current records for the computation of constants

Here are some interesting pandigital sequences :
0123456789 : from 17.387.594.880-th of pi
9876543210 : from 21.981.157.633-th of pi

A sequence of twelve 9's is detected in the value of 1/pi
999999999999 : from 12.479.021.132-th of 1/pi

Update [ October 11, 2002 ]

Dr Francis Podmore (Senior Lecturer), Department of Physics,
University of Zimbabwe, Mount Pleasant, Harare, Zimbabwe (email),
told me that the current record for the length of the number of
digits of pi is 206 billion, by Kanada in 1999.

A NEW RECORD was set in the calculation of PI.
