Question:

# How do we explain the use of a software on a math paper?

Jaxon: 2 days ago

Suppose one has written a math/computer science paper that is more focused in the math part of it. I had a very complicated function and needed to find its maximum, so I used Mathematica (Wolfram) to do it. How do I explain that? "Using wolfram we find the maximum of $$f$$ to be $$1.0328...$$ therefore...". It looks very sloppy.
