For Python 3 this should not be causing a syntax error:
import math as m
π = m.pi
...but, it does. The Jupyter Notebook runs without errors in browser-based kernel. I have python 3.5 chosen for the project.
Other examples also fail where a Greek symbol is used -- where it is simply equated to a constant.
Thanks for your help,
I have PyCharm 2016.2.3.
