A lively community of people including students, researchers and tinkerers from Marseille (France) celebrate the so-called "π-day" on the 3rd month, 14th day of each year. A nice occasion for general talks on mathematics and society in a lively athmosphere and of course to ... a pie contest!
I participated last year (in 2016) with a pie called "Monte Carlo". Herein, I give the recipe by giving some clues on its design... This page is a notebook - meaning that you can download it and re-run the analysis I do here at home (and most importantly comment or modify it and correct potential bugs...).
Let's first initialize the notebook:
from __future__ import division, print_function import numpy as np np.set_printoptions(precision=6, suppress=True) import os %matplotlib inline #%config InlineBackend.figure_format='retina' %config InlineBackend.figure_format = 'svg' import matplotlib.pyplot as plt fig_width = 10 figsize = (fig_width, fig_width) %load_ext autoreload %autoreload 2
The pie looked like this:
