Gene Wirchenko:
You monster! Now you have me wondering what the longest
palindrome in the first 100,000 digits of pi is.
Assuming that http://www.angio.net/pi/digits/pi1000000.txt has the
correct digits, it'd be 0136776310, starting at the 16061st decimal
place.
I'm actually surprised that it's unique and that short. In the whole
million digits, there are 9 other palindroms of length 10 digits,
9 of length 11, one of length 12, and one of length 13. But all of
these are between the 240,000th and 940,000th decimal places.
(The two longest are 450197791054, at the 273,840th decimal place, and 9475082805749, at the 879,326th. A simple C program found all of these
in less than a second, then took half an hour to confirm that there are
no longer ones in the first million digits.)
