Experimental Mathematics is a recently structured field of Mathematics that uses a computer and advanced computing technology as tools to perform experiments such as analysis of examples, testing of new ideas, and the search of patterns. The development of a broad spectrum of mathematical software products such as *Mathematica*® and *Maple*^{TM} has allowed mathematicians of diverse backgrounds and interests to make the computer an essential part of their daily working environment. This volume represents the AMS Special Session on Experimental Mathematics held in January 2007 in New Orleans. This gathering is part of an annual meeting of a growing number of scientists that have been labeled experimental mathematicians. The guiding principles of the field, some of which are included in the introduction to these proceedings, are similar to those of laboratory experiments in the physical and biological sciences. Readership Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in experimental/emperical mathematics with application to various sciences. |
