  • We describe here an experimental method that permits to compute a good candidate for the closed form of a generating function if we know the first few terms of a series. The method is based on integer relations algorithms and uses either two programs of symbolic computation: Maple or Pari-Gp. Some results are presented in the appendix. This method was tested on a set of sequences that were part of the incoming book on integer sequences (as of 1993). This method was presented at the FPSAC… CONTINUE READING
