Abstract: The value of Euler's or Mascheroni's constant

$\displaystyle \gamma \,=\,\underset{n\to \infty }{\mathop{\lim }}\,\,(1\,+\,\tfrac{1}{2}\,+\,\cdots \,+\,({1}/{n})\,-\,\ln \,n)$

has now been determined to 1271 decimal places, thus extending the previously known value of 328 places. A calculation of partial quotients and best rational approximations to $ \gamma $ was also made.
