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

Publisher: DocServer
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.
