Editorial Reviews

Review

Experimental mathematics is here to stay. The reader who wants to get an introduction to this exciting approach to doing mathematics can do no better than [this book]. --Notices, American Mathematical Society

Let me cut to the chase: every mathematics library requires a copy of this book. Every supervisor of higher degree students requires a copy on their shelf. Welcome to the rich world of computer-supported mathematics! --Mathematical Reviews

You are going to learn more math (experimental or otherwise). Not only that, you will learn by osmosis how to become an experimental mathematician. --American Scientist
