**The Experimental Mathematician: The Pleasure of Discovery and the Role of Proof**

by Jonathan M. Borwein

**Publisher**: DocServer 2004**Number of pages**: 34

**Description**:

The emergence of powerful mathematical computing environments, the growing availability of correspondingly powerful (multi-processor) computers and the pervasive presence of the internet allow for mathematicians, students and teachers, to proceed heuristically and 'quasi-inductively'. We may increasingly use symbolic and numeric computation, visualization tools, simulation and data mining.
