COMMENTS

As radians, this is equal to 270 degrees or 300 gradians.

Multiplying a number by -i (with i being the imaginary unit sqrt(-1)) is equivalent to rotating it by this amount on the complex plane.

Named 'Pau' by Randall Munroe, as a humorous compromise between Pi and Tau. - Orson R. L. Peters, Jan 08 2017

(3*Pi/2)*a^2 is the area of the cardioid whose polar equation is r = a*(1+cos(t)) and whose Cartesian equation is (x^2+y^2-a*x)^2 = a^2*(x^2+y^2). The length of this cardioid is 8*a. See the curve at the Mathcurve link. - Bernard Schott, Jan 29 2020

FORMULA

2*Pi - Pi/2 = Pi + Pi/2.

Equals Integral_{t=0..Pi} (1+cos(t))^2 dt. - Bernard Schott, Jan 29 2020

Equals -4 + Sum_{k>=1} (k+1)*2^k/binomial(2*k,k). - Amiram Eldar, Aug 19 2020
