Title: "The Hundred Dollar, Hundred Digits Challenge problems."

Abstract: The SIAM 100-Dollar, 100-Digit Challenge (in PDF) consisted of ten numerical problems posted in the January/February 2002 issue of SIAM News. Gaston Gonnet and I formed one of the 20 teams who won first place by finding all the answers correct to 10 digits. I will discuss the solutions of several of the problems. The full solution set is lodged as a Maple Worksheet.
