Our annual Clifford Lectures is featuring a week long series of lectures on "Experimental (Computational) Mathematics - and Its Philosophical Implications" by Professor Jonathan Borwein of Dalhousie University, Halifax, NS, Canada.
The lectures will be accompanied by the 2005 Clifford Conference Experimental Mathematics. Most participants are being housed at the Hampton Inn, located at 226 Carondelet Street.
