Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

This is the probability that a Gaussian triangle in 3 dimensions is obtuse.

Also the probability that the distance between 2 randomly selected points within a circle will be smaller than the radius. - Amiram Eldar, Mar 03 2019
