Root 2

What follows are the first 10 million digits of the square root of 2. Actually,
slightly more than 10 million digits are given here. These digits were computed
by Robert Nemiroff (George Mason University and NASA Goddard Space Flight
Center) and checked by Jerry Bonnell (University Space Research Association and
NASA Goddard Space Flight Center). They were computed during spare time on a
VAX alpha class machine over the course of several weeks. We do NOT guarantee
the accuracy of these digits - in fact, these digits past 6 million have not
been checked. We believe these are the most digits ever computed for the
square root of two on or before 1 June 1994. If anyone is aware of more digits
we ask them to please alert us of their existence. We have also computed
several digits of the number e and the square roots of other numbers. These are
available on this mosaic server (URL: We welcome comments.
