Mathematics: An Experimental Science
Herbert Wilf, University of Pennsylvania.
PIMS 10th Anniversary Lecture Series, 2007.
Abstract: We'll discuss some recent results that were conjectured via computer experiments and then proven. The examples will be drawn from number theory, Young tableaux, hypergeometric determinant evaluation, theory of matrices sof 0s and 1s, etc. Several unsolved problems that also resulted from these studies will be presented.
