The Chudnovsky Algorithm

(NOTE: It only does 18 iterations, as if you try to do any more, it raises an OverflowError, how lame.. -__-)

わーい, another π approximation method! (I do love these things. π is gorgeous, is it not?)

This is one of the fastest formulae for π out there, used to approximate out to 50 TRILLION DIGITS of π, in January of this year!

The notation for this in Σ is very long, so I have provided a screenshot of it, from its Wikipedia page:

Feedback is greatly appreciated, please enjoy!

(EDIT: Wow! I am glad this was a bit of a conversation starter for you all, thank you so much for all the upvotes!!)

(EDIT 2: I am still getting tons of traction on this, and am glad it is so interesting to all of you. Thank you so much!)
