# Experimental Mathematics Lab

The **Experimental Mathematics Lab** promotes and coordinates experimental activities in mathematics at the University of Luxembourg.

We are all accustomed to the idea of experiments in physics, chemistry or biology. But mathematics can be done at an equally experimental level, often using computational methods. This applies to statistics, algebra, analysis, geometry, and other flavours of mathematics, and includes

- visualising complex mathematical objects
- using computers to work with examples that go beyond what is possible using pen and paper
- finding patterns in complicated data

Even in highly abstract areas of mathematics the value of experimentation has increased dramatically in recent years, with computers, programming languages and computer algebra systems getting stronger and easier to use.

There is a gallery with some highlights of the results of previous projects, and you can find an overview of past projects to get a good feeling for how mathematics can be experimental.
