The lecturer will describe how computational "records" have
recently been broken through Mathematica protoyping and direct Mathematica
processing. Such records include: the discovery of the currently largest known explicit
prime number, the resolution of the massive number called F22, other results in
computational number theory, high-dimensional integration, and high-precision analysis.
Richard Crandall, noted author, computationalist, and lecturer, holds the
position of Distinguished Scientist at Apple Computer, having previously been Chief
Scientist at NeXT Software. His research specialty is interdisciplinary computation,
ranging from cryptography to graphics to computational physics.
