    Mathematicians Writing for Mathematicians.Line Edslev Andersen, Mikkel Willum Johansen & Henrik Kragh Sørensen - forthcoming - Synthese:1-18.
    We present a case study of how mathematicians write for mathematicians. We have conducted interviews with two research mathematicians, the talented PhD student Adam and his experienced supervisor Thomas, about a research paper they wrote together. Over the course of 2 years, Adam and Thomas revised Adam’s very detailed first draft. At the beginning of this collaboration, Adam was very knowledgeable about the subject of the paper and had good presentational skills but, as a new PhD student, did not yet (...)

    The Role of Testimony in Mathematics.Line Edslev Andersen, Hanne Andersen & Henrik Kragh Sørensen - forthcoming - Synthese:1-12.
    Mathematicians appear to have quite high standards for when they will rely on testimony. Many mathematicians require that a number of experts testify that they have checked the proof of a result p before they will rely on p in their own proofs without checking the proof of p. We examine why this is. We argue that for each expert who testifies that she has checked the proof of p and found no errors, the likelihood that the proof contains no (...)

    Exploratory Experimentation in Experimental Mathematics: A Glimpse at the PSLQ Algorithm.Henrik Kragh Sørensen - 2010 - In Benedikt Löwe & Thomas Müller (eds.), PhiMSAMP. Philosophy of Mathematics: Sociological Aspects and Mathematical Practice. College Publications. pp. 341--360.
    In the present paper, I go beyond these examples by bringing into play an example that I nd more experimental in nature, namely that of the use of the so-called PSLQ algorithm in researching integer relations between numerical constants. It is the purpose of this paper to combine a historical presentation with a preliminary exploration of some philosophical aspects of the notion of experiment in experimental mathematics. This dual goal will be sought by analysing these aspects as they are presented (...)

  4. Experimental Mathematics in the 1990s: A Second Loss of Certainty?Henrik Kragh Sørensen - 2010 - Oberwolfach Reports (12):601--604.
    In this paper, I describe some aspects of the phenomenon of "experimental mathematics" in order to discuss whether it constitutes a subdiscipline or a particular style of mathematics. My conclusion is that neither of these notions accurately capture the complex culture of experimental mathematics.

    Abel and His Mathematics in Contexts.Henrik Kragh Sørensen - 2002 - NTM Zeitschrift für Geschichte der Wissenschaften, Technik und Medizin 10 (1-3):137-155.
    200 years ago, on August 5, 1802, Niels Henrik Abel was born on Finnøy near Stavanger on the Norwegian west coast. During a short life span, Abel contributed to a deep transition in mathematics in which concepts replaced formulae as the basic objects of mathematics. The transformation of mathematics in the 1820s and its manifestation in Abel’s works are the themes of the author’s PhD thesis. After sketching the formative instances in Abel’s well-known biography, this article illustrates two aspects of (...)

  12. Making Philosophy of Science Relevant for Science Students.Henrik Kragh Sørensen - 2012 - Centre for Science Studies, University of Aarhus.
    Since 2004, it has been mandated by law that all Danish undergraduate university programmes have to include a compulsory course on the philosophy of science for that particular program. At the Faculty of Science and Technology, Aarhus University, the responsibility for designing and running such courses were given to the Centre for Science Studies, where a series of courses were developed aiming at the various bachelor educations of the Faculty. Since 2005, the Centre has been running a dozen different courses (...)
