Borwein and Broadhurst, using experimental-mathematics techniques, in 1998 identified numerous hyperbolic 3-manifolds whose volumes are rationally related to values of various Dirichlet L series $\textup{L}_{d}(s)$. In particular, in the simplest case of an ideal tetrahedron in hyperbolic space, they conjectured that a dilogarithmic integral representing the volume equals to $\textup{L}_{-7}(2)$. Here we have provided a formal proof of this conjecture which has been recently numerically…

Determinations of rational Dedekind-zeta invariants of hyperbolic manifolds and Feynman knots and links

We identify 998 closed hyperbolic 3-manifolds whose volumes are rationally related to Dedekind zeta values, with coprime integers $a$ and $b$ giving $$\frac{a}{b}\,{\rm vol}({\cal

Massive 3-loop Feynman diagrams reducible to SC$^*$ primitives of algebras of the sixth root of unity

Abstract. In each of the 10 cases with propagators of unit or zero mass, the finite part of the scalar 3-loop tetrahedral vacuum diagram is reduced to 4-letter words in the 7-letter alphabet of the

Ten Problems in Experimental Mathematics

The intent was to present ten problems that are characteristic of the sorts of problems that commonly arise in ''experimental mathematics'' and to present a concise account of how one combines symbolic and numeric computation, which may be termed ''hybrid computation'', in the process of mathematical discovery.

Computer-Assisted Discovery and Proof

It is argued that the most persuasive indication that computer-assisted mathematics has reached maturity is that it is not unusual to see computations mentioned in almost any mathematical journal, even in very “pure” venues that have no mission to feature computational studies.

Experimental Mathematics: Examples, Methods and Implications

Using computer tools to test conjectures is by itself a major time saver for mathematicians, as it permits them to quickly rule out false notions.
