Many explanations are framed by relevant historical context and tales of mathematicians whose use of experimental mathematics helped them gain insights into difficult problems. . . . I thoroughly enjoyed reading this short introduction to experimental mathematics. It will no doubt appeal to a broad mathematical audience, both professional and amateur alike." -Mitch Wheat, Gazette of the Australian Mathematical Society , July 2009 Newsletter_0609.pdf "It is a pleasant and readable book for any working mathematician who wants to know something more about the use of computers for generating hypotheses on relations among known and less known special numbers." - Newsletter of the European Mathematical Society , June 2009 ". allows [the reader] to take a look at some interesting problems and solve [them] using [a] computer. The authors are showing how a mathematician can use a computer as a tool. . The book covers a variety of topics and examples in order to give the reader a good sense of the current state of play in the rapidly growing new field of experimental mathematics. . The writing is clear and the explanations are enhanced by relevant historical facts and stories of mathematicians and their encounters with the field over time. The book will be of interest to any reader who would like to taste the solving of mathematical problems with a computer. No matter if readers may not have much mathematical knowledge: they can catch the essentials with the book, and have fun exploring some questions." -Valentina Dagiene, Zentralblatt MATH , September 2009 "[This] is a pleasant and readable book for any working mathematician who wants to know something more about the use of computers for generating hypotheses on relations among known and less known special numbers." - EMS Newsletter , June 2009 " .
