Mathematics has different areas, one of them is the number theory, which includes the mathematical sequences and series, which have peculiar characteristics and a unique aesthetic. An particularly interesting case is the Recamán sequence.
The year’s start is a special moment, the beginning of a new cycle, and although this period is somewhat subjective, it allows us to estimate and appreciate time as a continuous, constant and permanent flow. Yet time has profound implications if we associate it with aspects of physics.
It is probable that there’s no numerical value more known than that used to refer the ratio between the circumference of a circle (or its perimeter), and its diameter (the line that divides a circle into two equal halves).
