More on our philosophical backgrounds on computation and mathematics (in French) Philosophy Books 

Two quotes about mathematical and computer experience which inspired our company name Soft Experience

Our experience working within a mathematical theory and in applying it can support our belief that it is consistent. Empirical evidence may also be used to establish the reliability of our computers - something we presuppose when we appeal to their computations.Michael D. Resnik, Mathematics as a Science of Patterns, Clarendon - Oxford, 1997, p. 173

The matter of syntax and semantics of computer programs shows much of the old spirit of the Greek geometry. It describes constructions (computer programs) and proves that they actually achieve what is promised in the program specifications. N. G. De Bruijn, On the roles of types in mathematics, in The Curry-Howard isomorphism, Cahiers du Centre de Logique 8, Ed. by Ph. de Groote, Academia, Louvain-La-Neuve, 1995, p. 48.
