Experimental Mathematics
in Number Theory, Operator Algebras, and Topology

The project attemptet to advance three independent, but neighboring, areas of mathematical research (number theory, operator algebras, and topology) by systematic experimentation using the most powerful grids of computers in Denmark and drawing on the highest computer scientific expertise to develop algorithms and methods in active collaboration with leading mathematicians in the three areas.

Recent development of hard- and software in combination with the unique theoretical expertise present in Copenhagen and neighboring universities at Odense and Lund give us what we see as exceptional opportunities for creating significant breakthroughs both in mathematics and computer science.

The project is completed.

Experimental mathematics?

Experimental mathematics is the modus operandi of using computers for generating insight into pure mathematics.
