A Non-Normality Result
- Author(s): Bailey, David H
- et al.
This paper discusses discusses a certain mathematical constant that was recently proven to be 2-normal -- every m-long string of digits in its binary expansion appear, in the limit, with frequently 1/2^m. This paper establishes the result that this constant is NOT 6-normal -- its expansion base 6 is decidedly not random.
