Pure and Applied Mathematics Specialization
||Faculty of Arts and Science
|Field of Study:
Pure Mathematics is primarily the study of mathematics for its own sake. This is not to say that Pure Mathematics has no applications, but the initial motivation for its study is inner beauty and rigour, as opposed to application or practical use. Applied Mathematics develops out of a need to solve problems in the real world. Often, the solution of a problem in Applied Mathematics requires a deep understanding of the underlying Pure Mathematics. Thus, the distinction between the two is often a fine line.|
Research in Pure Mathematics often stems from a desire to understand the inner workings of intricate mathematical designs and relationships. But it can also be sparked by the need to create a new mathematical model to fit a practical problem and a desire to understand the deeper structure of such models. Applied mathematicians are instrumental in designing and analysing models of systems and in testing and evaluating performance. Whether in research and development or industrial production, the applied mathematician interacts with engineers, physicists, programmers and other specialists.
