π is wrong!” by Bob Palais

appeared in

The Mathematical Intelligencer Springer-Verlag New York Volume 23, Number 3, 2001, pp. 7-8.

Bob Palais gratefully acknowledges Dr. Chandler Davis, for his encouragement and editorial input.

(See also the Wikipedia entry on Dr. Davis.) The most amusing letter to the editor in response stated:

“I agree with Bob Palais’ pi-ous article, but it may be 2-pi-ous.”
