Mathematical Analysis: A Definition Mathematical Analysis can be defined as the aggregate of all branches of Mathematics which involves the

study of functions by minute methods. It has its beginning in the rigorous formulation of calculus. It is the branch of pure mathematics most explicitly concerned with the notion of a limit, whether the limit of a sequence or the limit of a function. Mathematical Analysis generally deals with numerical data and is used for calculative purposes. Statistical Analysis: A Definition Statistical analysis refers to a collection of methods used to process large amounts of data and report overall trends. Statistical analysis is particularly useful when dealing with noisy data. Statistical analysis provides ways to objectively report on how unusual an event is based on historical data. In other words The process of examining data to draw conclusions or insights, and determine cause-and-effect patterns between events; for example determining the safety and efficacy of new drugs by drawing out a probability as to whether the fact that a patient got better (or worse) was due to the drug or some Mathematical Analysis Vs Statistical Analysis: Difference Mathematical analysis generally grow out of equations that determine how a system changes from one state to the next (differential equations) and/or how one variable depends on the value or state of other variables (state equations) These can also be divided into either numerical models or analytical models. Whereas on the other hand Statistical analysis include issues such as statistical characterization of numerical data, estimating the probabilistic future behavior of a system based on past behavior, extrapolation or interpolation of data based on some best-fit, error estimates of observations, or spectral analysis of data or model generated output. One of the major differences that can be pointed out is perhaps the fact that Mathematical Analysis gives a quantitative result whereas Statistical Analysis gives a Qualitative Result. Mathematical Analysis is used for drawing conclusions whereas Statistical Analysis is used for correlating the cause and effect relationship between the various variables. Statistical science is concerned with the planning of studies, especially with the design of randomized experiments and with the planning of surveys using random sampling.
