Title: Searching for Hypergeometric Identities By Sheer Brute Force

Speaker: **Doron Zeilberger**, Rutgers University

Date: Thursday, February 28, 2008 5:00pm

Location: Hill Center, Room 705, Rutgers University, Busch Campus, Piscataway, NJ

Abstract:

Brute force, when done in a clever rather than brute way, can go a long way. For example, for finding new families of so-called hypergeometric identities. (joint work with Moa Apagodu)
