On a physics newsgroup, the following was written:

   "Recently a mathematician submitted a classic problem
    to Mathematica, one thought to have no closed-form
    solution. After churning away for eight hours, the
    program created a publishable result.  When he
    published the result, the mathematician in question
    courageously admitted how he acquired it."

I personally asked the author for documentation of this, but he
was unable to recall the source. Does anyone have some facts
about this, or about a similar use of Mathematica?
