$$\pi=\sum_{n=0}^{\infty}{(25n-3)n!(2n)!\over2^{n-1}(3n)!}$$ is due to the American mathematician, Bill Gosper.

$${1\over\pi}={12\over\sqrt{640320^3}}\sum_{k=0}^{\infty}(-1)^k{(6k)!\over(k!)^3(3k)!}{13591409+545140134k\over(640320^3)^k}$$ is due to the American mathematicians (born in Kiev) D. and G. Chudnovsky.
