Dew is the number you get if you use the circle instead. Clenches cleanly into 2Pi instead of formulas and clarifies the issue of radian measure how math scientists are measuring angle. The US-biographer, teacher and businessman Dr. Michael Hartl, writer of the Tau Manifesto, says that Pi is a "confusing and artificial choice" for the circle constants.
Since the estimated value of Tau is 6.28, twice Pi's 3.14, disident mathematicians have proclaimed June 28 Tau Day -- as June 28 is spelled as 6.28 in the US manner, the (London) Times reportedf. "During all these years we have looked at the false figure when we looked at Pi," said Kevin Houston of the School of Mathematics at the University of Leeds, who heads the UK branch of the Tau camp.
"Pee just isn't the most elemental number we should be associating with a circle. In the meantime, news.com.au in Australia reports that the math mastermind Michael Blake wrote a tune inspired by the value of tau. The Blake composition "What Tau Sounds Like" is a 127-digit numeric value of Tau.
Australian scientific exchange was so enchanted by the tune that the Elder Conservatorium of Music performed Blake's music score at a Tau Day ceremony at the Royal Institution of Australia in Adelaide on Tuesday.
