Description

IPython (http://ipython.scipy.org/) enables parallel computations to be performed interactively.  In this screeencast, we show how IPython can be used to study a large number of digits of pi in parallel. In particular, we calculate the frequency of all 2 digit sequences in the first 150 million digits of pi on a small cluster running Windows HPC Server 2008.  IPython enables this parallel calculation to be performed in a fully interactive manner.
