Abstract

We describe the setup, design, and running of an experiment utilizing a supercomputer that is helping to formulate and test conjectures in the real Schubert calculus. Largely using machines in instructional computer labs during o -hours and University breaks, it has consumed in excess of 350 GigaHertz-years of computing in its rst six months of operation, solving over 1.1 billion polynomial systems. This experiment can serve as a model for other large scale mathematical investigations.
