 This volume is the hardcopy version of the electronic manuscript, "Proceedings of the Organic Mathematics Workshop" held at Simon Fraser University in December 1995. The book provides a fixed, easily referenced, and permanent version of what is otherwise an evolving document. Contained in this work is a collection of articles on experimental and computational mathematics contributed by leading mathematicians around the world. The papers span a variety of mathematical fieldsfrom juggling to differential equations to prime number theory. The book also contains biographies and photos of the contributing mathematicians and an indepth characterization of organic mathematics. Titles in this series are copublished with the Canadian Mathematical Society. Members of the Canadian Mathematical Society may order at the AMS member price.
