BigDataFr recommends: Representation of Numbers with Incredibly Fast Converging Fractions

[…] Here we discuss a new system to represent numbers, for instance constants such as Pi, e, or log 2, using rational fractions. Each iteration doubles the precision (the number of correct decimals computed) making it converging much faster than current systems such as continued fractions, to represent any positive real number. The algorithm discussed here is equivalent to the greedy algorithm to compute Egyptian fractions, except that we use it here mostly for irrational numbers. […]
