About the Experimental Mathematics Lab

The Experimental Mathematics Lab (EML) was created in June 2014 within the Mathematics Research Unit and the FSTC. It is a light structure designed to:

We believe that participating in such computational mathematics projects can be an important addition to the ``traditional'' teaching of mathematics. One reason is that it gives students the opportunity to interact in a very practical way with elaborate mathematical notions, to the point where it often allows them to discover a new way to do and think about mathematics. Another is that it helps them develop programming skills that are useful well beyond their studies.

Among the students who could be involved we can single out for instance:

Our project is based on a number of successful experiments conducted, over the years, in a number of universities. For instance:

The concept of Experimental Mathematics is nowadays a well established one, connecting Mathematics, Computer Science and Communiciation Technology (see, for instance, the Institute of Experimental Mathematics of the University of Duisburg-Essen.
