Description

In the book Algorithmic Information Theory, G. J. Chaitin explains how to construct a million-character equation that proves that there is randomness in arithmetic. The book only includes a few pages from the monster equation, and omits the software used to construct it. This software has now been rewritten in Mathematica. The Mathematica software for the book, and its input, are here in their entirety.
