The SIAM 100-Dollar, 100-Digit Challenge
Teamed with my friend Kim McInturff of Raytheon Company, Goleta, CA, I recently competed in the SIAM (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics) 100-Dollar, 100-Digit Challenge. The challenge consisted of ten numerical problems posted in the January/February 2002 issue of SIAM News and later publicized in Science and elswhere. The answer to each problem was a single real number. Contestants could earn up to ten points for ten correct digits on each problem, a maximum of 100 points total. My team finished tied in first place with 19 other teams from around the world by getting all 100 digits correct.
