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.
