Description

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.
