Mathematics: An Experimental Science

Herbert Wilf, University of Pennsylvania.

PIMS 10th Anniversary Lecture Series, 2007.

Friday May 25th, 2007, 2:30pm, IRMACS Theatre.


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.
