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

By the definition this constant takes the values 0 < x < Pi such that the horizontal line y = sin x divides the region bounded by the sine curve and the interval [0,Pi] on the x-axis into two figures of equal areas.
