Experimental Mathematics in Number Theory, Operator Algebras, and Topology

The project is completed.

The project attempted 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.

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