Borwein, Borwein, Corless, Jörgenson, Sinclair, eds.  
Proceedings of a 1996 workshop held at Simon Fraser University, Vancouver, Canada. Speakers (top experimental and computational mathematicians); their articles, with equations, code, photos, videos, and annotations; and related resources and links. Invited articles include: Pfaff's Method (III): Comparison With the WZ Method (Andrews); Ramanujan, Modular Equations, and Approximations to Pi or How to compute One Billion Digits of Pi (Bailey, J. Borwein, P. Borwein); Recognizing Numerical Constants (Bailey, Plouffe); The Beta Expansion for Salem Numbers (Boyd); Juggling Drops and Descents (Buhler, Graham); GL(4)orbits in a 16Dimensional Module for Characteristic 3 (Cohen); Binary Cubic Forms and Cubic Number Fields (Cohen); Continued Fractions and Chaos (Corless); Sequences and Regular Expressions (Devitt); Approximations to Pi via the Dedekind Eta Function (J. Borwein, Garvan); The Arithmetic Properties of Binomial Coefficients (Granville); A New Look at the Airy Equation with Fences and Funnels (Hubbard, McDill, Noonburg, West); The 3x+1 Problem and Its Generalizations (Lagarias); The Search for a Finite Projective Plane of Order 10 (Lam); A Nonlinear Equation and Its Application to Nearest Neighbor Spacings for Zeros of the Zeta Function and Eigenvalues of Random Matrices (Forrester, Odlyzko); and New Visualization Ideas for Differential Equations (Wagon).
