Applied mathematics

The study of the application of mathematical principles to domains outside of mathematics itself.  Although the branches of mathematics within this categorization change with time, applied mathematics typically involves the use of differential equations, numerical analysis, and statistics with areas of knowledge such as engineering, biology, physics, computer science, economics, and finance.

The July 2016 summer session f the Park City Mathematics Institute, in Princeton, New Jersey, focused on the mathematics of data, an area of applied mathematics. The underlying ideas are that all data must be modeled--by a matrix, say, or a graph or a flat table--and to perform similar operations on very different types of data, there must be some sort of common mathematical structure--perhaps from linear algebra, graph theory, or logic.
