Pi Day Google Doodle: Here's How It Was Designed

Pi Day Google doodle

The dessert is visible right in Google's Doodle, baked by award-winning pastry chef Dominique Ansel, who popularized the Cronut and other sweet treats in his bakeries throughout New York, Los Angeles, London, and Tokyo. Observers often celebrate the day with a slice of their favorite pie.

Memorizing Pi has been something that has fascinated people and there have been straight records for the same with the record for the most digits of pi being memorized by Rajveer Meena of Vellore, India, who recited 70,000 decimal places of pi on March 21, 2015, according to The Guinness Book Of World Records.

Google shared behind-the-scene action of making the Google Doodle on Pi Day.

As we celebrate again in 2018, here are some Pi Day facts you should know.

Pi is useful in every field of science as it's used for calculations involving the volume and surface area of spheres, as well as for determining the rotations of circular objects such as wheels. A Babylonian tablet from between 1900 B.C. and 1680 B.C. calculates pi as 3.125, and the Rhind Mathematical Papyrus of 1650 B.C., a famous Egyptian mathematical document, lists a value of 3.1605.




The global day of Pi was first recognized in 1988 by physicist Larry Shaw.

Pi (Greek letter "I") is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant - the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter - which is approximately 3.14159.

Pi has become a true cultural symbol, a metaphor for the mysteries of mathematics, which has inspired its own literary genre - Pilish. Interestingly, Albert Einstein's birth anniversary falls on March 14, which is also celebrated at Princeton by organising an annual Einstein look-alike contest. In layman's terms, 3.14 is only the beginning and the number goes on for infinity.
