Mathematics

Mathematical sciences include the disciplines of pure mathematics, applied mathematics and statistics. Mathematicians and statisticians use representations of abstract ideas and relationships to solve problems, in order to arrive at a general understanding of how these representations work, as well as how they could be applied.
