Glossary of Mathematical Terms (Story of Mathematics)


Mathematics is the study of quantity, space, structure, and change. Mathematicians seek out patterns and formulate new conjectures. Mathematicians resolve the truth or falsity of conjectures by mathematical proofs, which are arguments sufficient to convince other mathematicians of their validity. The research required to solve mathematical problems can take years or even centuries of sustained inquiry. Since the pioneering work of Giuseppe Peano, David Hilbert, and others on axiomatic systems in the late 19th century, it has become customary to view mathematical research as establishing truth by rigorous deduction from appropriately chosen axioms and definitions. When those mathematical structures are good models of real phenomena, then mathematical reasoning often provides insight or predictions. Through the use of abstraction and logical reasoning, mathematics evolved from counting, calculation, measurement, and the systematic study of the shapes and motions of physical objects. Practical mathematics has been a human activity for as far back as written records exist. Rigorous arguments first appeared in Greek mathematics, most notably in Euclid’s Elements. Mathematics continued to develop, for example in China in 300 BC, in India in AD 100, and in the Muslim world in AD 800, until the Renaissance, when mathematical innovations interacting with new scientific discoveries led to a rapid increase in the rate of mathematical discovery that continues to the present day. — Wikipedia (Math Skills)

  • Accurate estimation of biodiversity is now...
    on January 23, 2018 at 5:00 am

    (Stellenbosch University) Policymakers are often concerned with the preservation of biodiversity at national, continental or global scales, but most biodiversity monitoring is conducted at very fine scales. This mismatch between the scales of our policies and of our data creates serious challenges, especially when assessing biodiversity change. In a new study, published in Ecological Monographs today, nearly the entire global research community addressing this problem was asked to put their […]

    on January 23, 2018 at 5:00 am

    (Greenwood Genetic Center) Greenwood Genetic Center (GGC) researchers in collaboration with scientists from Canada have identified unique epigenetic signatures for nine neurodevelopmental disorders lending to a better method of diagnosis for disorders with much clinical overlap. The epigenetic signatures were developed through methylation array analysis and were reported in the January issue of The American Journal of Human Genetics. […]

    on January 23, 2018 at 5:00 am

    (Coventry University) Modern mathematical techniques -- similar to those used to analyze social-networking websites -- have allowed academics to shed new light on a centuries old debate surrounding the Viking age in Ireland and the famous battle of Clontarf in 1014. […]

  • Transport, Fluids, and Mixing
    on January 23, 2018 at 5:00 am

    (De Gruyter) The aim of this volume is to present the state of the art in the mathematical analysis of transport and mixing phenomena in fluids and associated problems. It supplements current literature on the subject with a unique blend of contributions that touch upon both theoretical as well as modeling questions and showcase a variety of techniques, from the analysis of partial differential equations, to harmonic analysis, to computational methods.
