# MATHEXP experimental mathematics

MATHEXP develops and implements symbolic and seminumerical computational methods to deal with special functions and numbers in experimental mathematics. Our objectives span a range of topics from fundamental algorithms to applications in combinatorics, number theory, statistical physics, quantum mechanics, and algebraic geometry, pushing forward the limits of computability and efficiency.

*Experimental mathematics* is the study of mathematical phenomena by computational means.
*Computer algebra* is the art of doing effective and efficient exact mathematics on a computer.
MATHEXP develops both themes in parallel, in order to discover and prove new
mathematical results, often out of reach for classical human means. It is our
strong belief that modern mathematics will benefit more and more from computer
tools. We ambition to provide mathematical users with appropriate algorithmic
theories and implementations.
