A highly idealized picture

While what we do in the paper is symbolic computation and centers on computer experiments, perhaps the simplest description of the ideas is in terms of an idealized problem in noncommuting algebra. We first consider two extremely powerful hypothetical operations and then show in § how they are combined in what we call an idealized strategy.
