In 1706 a little-known mathematics teacher William Jones first used a symbol to represent the platonic concept of pi, an ideal that in numerical terms can be approached, but never reached. Patricia Rothman discusses Jones’s significance among his contemporaries and the unique archive that forms his legacy.

 

William Jones, mathematician from Wales, 1740
