My undergraduate degree was in Mathematics (University of Dallas, 1971). My core interest is General Systems Theory. My career was mostly in computer programming, however, I also taught English, and high-school mathematics, in China for 9 years. I am currently semi-retired, drawing social security, and working on my various websites. As far as I am concerned, anything I do here is in the Public Domain.

comment Is $\pi$ more transcendent than $e$?
@muntoo: If you subtact the smallest value of π from the largest value of π, you get the root of the cause of the topological disconnectedness of the set of pure imaginary numbers:)

comment Can Buffon’s Needle Problem be used to give a simple proof that pi is irrational?
Pi emerges in Buffon's problem because the probability of the needle crossing a line depends on the angle at which it lands, and whenever you're talking angles, you're talking pi.
