    "Experimental applied mathematics" comprises the usage of modern computer technology as an active agent of research, for the purposes of gaining insight and intuition, discovering new patterns and relationships, testing and conjectures, and confirming analytically derived results, much in the same spirit that laboratory experimentation is employed in the physical sciences. It is closely related to what is known as "experimental mathematics" in pure mathematics, as has been described elsewhere, including the Princeton Companion to Pure Mathematics.
