Champernowne’s constant, denoted as 0.123456789101112… , is formed by concatenating successive natural numbers. It can be represented as an infinite series. Concatenating 0. with prime numbers yields the Copeland–Erdős constant.

## x log(π) = π log(x) ?

Are there other real solutions than x = π ?

## Nearly Right

Did you know? When you calculate (π^{4}+π^{5})/e^{6}, you get around 1! This means a triangle with sides π^{2}, e^{3}, and √π^{5} is nearly a right triangle…

## Egguation

Solve for the perfect omelette with this eggcellent formula!

In fact, if you graph x^{2} + y^{2} = 2^{y}, you will obtain a flawless egg shape:

However, there are also other methods to create a perfect ovoid shape using a compass and ruler, as illustrated below.

## Pervasive Pi: Unveiling the Quantum Connection

The formula developed by British mathematician John Wallis defines π as an infinite product of integer ratios. This formula was recently discovered in a quantum mechanics equation for hydrogen atom energy states, emphasizing its pervasiveness in math and science.

## The Geometry of the Bees

When constructing a honeycomb, bees aim to minimize wax usage and honey consumption, using the least wax necessary for a comb with maximum honey storage. The wax cells are designed with interlocking opposing layers, sharing facets at closed ends while having open ends facing outwards (see fig. 1). Each cell is a ten-sided structure with a rhombic decahedron form – a hexagonal prism with three rhombi at its closed end (fig. 2). Mathematicians have extensively studied the highly efficient isoperimetric properties of these cells. The question remains: What angle alpha maximizes volume while minimizing surface area on each cell face when the hexagonal prism’s faces have a width of 1 unit?
