Life of Pi – Yann Martel

About the Title

Life of Pi describes influential events in the life of Pi Patel, whose first name refers to the mathematical symbol pi, an irrational number (3.14159) that continues indefinitely without repeating numerals in a pattern. The symbol reflects Pi’s quest to understand the universe and the infinity of life, which is also why the author left the article out of the title: “Like pi, life is not finite.”
