Book Description
This book is of interest to mathematicians and computer scientists working in finite mathematics and combinatorics. It presents a breakthrough method for analyzing complex summations. Beautifully written, the book contains practical applications as well as conceptual developments that will have applications in other areas of mathematics.
From the table of contents: * Proof Machines * Tightening the Target * The Hypergeometric Database * The Five Basic Algorithms: Sister Celine's Method, Gosper&'s Algorithm, Zeilberger's Algorithm, The WZ Phenomenon, Algorithm Hyper * Epilogue: An Operator Algebra Viewpoint * The WWW Sites and the Software (Maple and Mathematica) Each chapter contains an introduction to the subject and ends with a set of exercises.
The mathematics described in the book "A=B" lead to the awarding of a Steele Prize by the American Mathematical Society to Herbert Wilf and Doron Zeilberger.
About the Authors Herbert S. Wilf was a mathematician, specializing in combinatorics and graph theory. He was the Thomas A. Scott Professor of Mathematics at the University of Pennsylvania. In 1998 he received the Leroy P. Steele Prize for Seminal Contribution to Research, awarded by the American Mathematical Society, and in 1996 he was awarded the Deborah and Franklin Tepper Haimo Award for Distinguished College or University Teaching of mathematics.
