Joy of Mathematical Experiments (Zoltán Galántai PhD)
"Like contemporary chemists—and before them the alchemists of
old—who mix various substances together in a crucible and heat
them to a high temperature to see what happens, today’s
experimental mathematician puts a hopefully potent mix of numbers,
formulas, and algorithms into a computer in the hope that
something of interest emerges."
(Jonathan Borwein - Keith Devlin: The Computer as Crubicle)
