  • Title: Hand-to-Hand Combat with Thousand-Digit Integrals
  • Location: Room V129, Mathematics Building (Callaghan Campus) The University of Newcastle

  • Abstract:

    One of the most effective avenues in recent experimental mathematics research is the computational of definite integrals to high precision, followed by the identification of resulting numerical values as compact analytic formulas involving well-known constants and functions. In this talk we summarize several applications of this methodology in the realm of applied mathematics and mathematical physics, in particular Ising theory, "box integrals", and the study of random walks.
