OK - I've had trouble too ;-)
Googling "boost math constants" gets you to an obsolete version of Boost with only a handful of
constants, and the handy link to the latest version doesn't really help much getting there direct.
using the boost.org site you get to the fearsome looking source code :-(
The third item gets you closer - to
but even that isn't latest version :-(
I'll discuss with John Maddock how we can do better - I'm sure we can.
