As computers gain a stronger hold in mathematics, should mathematicians start to worry?
Computers obviously depend on mathematics, but more and more areas of mathematics are starting to depend on computers.
Does this mixture violate the purity of mathematics? Will the beauty of mathematics be forgotten, reduced to cold hard computation?
Fortunately, the situation may be not so scary.
We will see many examples of mathematics and computers living happily together.
Moreover, pairing these disciplines can be beneficial to both sides.
I will argue that computers do not spell doom for mathematics; indeed, they make mathematics more exciting than ever.
And, of course, PIZZA!
