With the continued advance of computing power and accessibility, the view that “real mathematicians don't compute” no longer has any traction for a newer generation of mathematicians. The goal in this book is to present a coherent variety of accessible examples of modern mathematics where intelligent computing plays a significant role and in so doing to highlight some of the key algorithms and to teach some of the key experimental approaches. This book is an excellent choice for researchers [in mathematics] interested in exploring new avenues.
