# What does chance look like?

Visualization is a great thing. Everything immediately becomes clearer and, perhaps, a little clearer.

Daniel A. Becker, a graduate of the University of Applied Sciences Mainz, wondered in the title.

In the case of the Pi number, a phenomenon still not fully explored, Daniel made the following observations on a sample of 1 million decimal places. Order: the larger the range of observed decimal places, the more balanced the distribution of numbers from 0 to 9. Chaos: the distribution, frequency and sequence of decimal places of the Pi number cannot be systematized.

Visualization of the distribution of decimal digits of the number Pi.

To demonstrate various physical and mathematical phenomena, Daniel emulated them in the Processing environment, and visualized the results of this emulation in it, highlighting elements of chaos and order in the resulting randomness.
