|Ivars Peterson (MathTrek)|
|In the newly published, updated edition of The Mathematical Tourist, Peterson writes, "...computers have become commonplace tools used by nearly all mathematicians, not only to communicate with each other but also to explore mathematical questions... most mathematicians now consider the computer an essential part of their work.. "By providing vivid images that suggest new questions and by allowing a wide variety of calculations of test cases, computers are helping to mend a rift that had developed more than a century ago between pure and applied mathematics."|
