AIP Publishing - Researchers stumbled upon a famous pre-Newtonian formula for pi while computing the energy levels of a hydrogen atom. Quantum mechanical calculations of the energy levels of a hydrogen atom ended-up with the same mathematical formula than the John Wallis formula published in 1655 for the calculation of Pi.
