Mathematics is the science that deals with the logic of shape, quantity, and arrangement. Math is all around us, in everything we do. It is the building block for everything in our daily lives, including mobile devices, architecture (ancient and modern), art, money, engineering, and even sports.
People often wonder what relevance mathematicians serve today. In a modern world, math, such as applied mathematics, is not only relevant, it is crucial. Applied mathematics is a branch of mathematics that is involved in the study of the physical, biological, or sociological world. The idea of applied math is to create a group of methods that solve problems in science. Modern areas of applied math include mathematical physics, mathematical biology, control theory, aerospace engineering, and mathematical finance. Applied math not only solves problems but also discovers new problems or develops new engineering disciplines. Applied mathematicians require expertise in many areas of math, science, physical intuition, common sense, and collaboration. The common approach in applied math is to build a mathematical model of a phenomenon, solve the model and develop recommendations for performance improvement.
Mathematics is both an art and a science and pure mathematics lies at its heart. Pure mathematics explores the boundary of mathematics and pure reason. It has been described as “that part of mathematical activity that is done without explicit or immediate consideration of the direct application,” although what is “pure” in one era often becomes applied later. Finance and cryptography are current examples of areas in which pure mathematics is applied in significant ways. Pure mathematics is driven by abstract problems and used to design a mathematical model of real-world problems. Much of what is pursued by pure mathematicians can have its roots in concrete physical problems, but a deeper understanding of these phenomena brings about problems and technicalities. These abstract problems and technicalities are what pure mathematics attempts to solve and these attempts have led to major discoveries for mankind, including the Universal Turing Machine.
Computational mathematics involves mathematical research in areas of science where computing plays a central and essential role, emphasizing algorithms, numerical methods, and symbolic methods.
