The CECM Logo: What does it mean anyways?
 The three spheres suggest the informal mathematical therefore
symbol, referring to the CECM's interest in making experimental mathematics
an effective approach.
 The three lines suggest the mathematical symbol equivalent to,
again implying that experimental mathematics will yield results as concrete
and farreaching as conventional mathematics.
 The three spheres represent the three active groups at the CECM; the
Mathematic Research Group (MRG), the Computational Algebra Group (CAG),
and the Polymath Development Group (PDG).
 Both sets of three suggest the three founding members of the CECM,
Director Jon Borwein,
Associate Director Peter Borwein
and Research Manager
Loki Jorgenson.
 The single black sphere represents 1.
 The two blue spheres represent 2.
 The three lines represent 3. They are also the Sanskrit
symbol for 3; Sanskrit is the language of the first
mathematics.
 The three lines are also the Chinese trigram for
strength.
 The three spheres suggest the three aspects of science as it is
currently employed: Theory (thought), experiment (physical) and
simulation (computation). Or more appropriately to mathematics
which is inherently abstract; theory, application and experiment. The black
sphere is the focus of the CECM, experiment using computer.
 The perfect equilateral triangle contructed from the three perfect spheres
suggests precision and formal rigour. The three apparently handpainted
lines suggest human endeavour, creativity and personal effort.
 The colours of the CECM are blue (for the sky) and black (for readability).
