**A mathematician is a person with an extensive knowledge of mathematics who uses this
**

knowledge in their work, typically to solve mathematical problems. Mathematics is concerned

with numbers, data, collection, quantity, structure, space, models and change.

Mathematicians involved with solving problems outside of pure mathematics are called applied

mathematicians. Applied mathematicians are mathematical scientists who, with their specialized

knowledge and professional methodology, approach many of the imposing problems presented in

related scientific fields. With professional focus on a wide variety of problems, theoretical

systems, and localized constructs, applied mathematicians work regularly in the study and

formulation of mathematical models. Mathematicians and applied mathematicians are considered

to be two of the STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) careers.

The discipline of applied mathematics concerns itself with mathematical methods that are

typically used in science, engineering, business, and industry; thus, "applied mathematics" is

a mathematical science with specialized knowledge. The term "applied mathematics" also

describes the professional specialty in which mathematicians work on problems, often concrete

but sometimes abstract. As professionals focused on problem solving, applied

mathematicians look into the formulation, study, and use of mathematical models in science,

engineering, business, and other areas of mathematical practice.

Education

Mathematicians usually cover a breadth of topics within mathematics in their undergraduate

education, and then proceed to specialize in topics of their own choice at the graduate-level. In

some universities, a qualifying exam serves to test both the breadth and depth of a student's

understanding of mathematics; the students, who pass, are permitted to work on a doctoral

dissertation.

Motivation

Mathematicians do research in fields such as logic, set theory, category theory, abstract

algebra, number theory, analysis, geometry, topology, dynamical systems, combinatorics, game

theory, information theory, numerical

analysis, optimization, computation, probability and statistics. These fields comprise both pure

mathematics and applied mathematics and establish links between the two. Some of the fields

they work in is, such as the theory of dynamical systems, or game theory, are classified as

applied mathematics due to the relationships they possess with physics, economics and the other

sciences. Whether probability theory and statistics are of theoretical nature, applied nature, or

both, is quite controversial among mathematicians. Other branches of mathematics, however,

such as logic, number theory, category theory or set theory are accepted as part of pure

mathematics, though they find application in other sciences (predominantly computer

science and physics). Likewise, analysis, geometry and topology, although considered pure

mathematics, find applications in theoretical physics—string theory, for instance.

Though it is true that mathematics finds diverse applications in many areas of research, a

mathematician does not determine the value of an idea by the diversity of its applications.

Mathematics is interesting in its own right, and a substantial minority of mathematicians

investigate the diversity of structures studied in mathematics itself. However, among academic

mathematics, the majority of mathematical papers published in the United States are written by

academics outside of mathematics departments.

[citation needed]

Furthermore, a mathematician is not someone who merely manipulates formulas, numbers or

equations—the diversity of mathematics allows for research concerning how concepts in one

area of mathematics can be used in other areas too. For instance, if one graphs a set of solutions

of an equation in some higher-dimensional space, he may ask about the geometric properties of

the graph. Thus one can understand equations by a pure understanding of

abstract topology or geometry—this idea is of importance in algebraic geometry. Similarly, a

mathematician does not restrict his study of numbers to the integers; rather he considers more

abstract structures such as rings, and in particular number rings in the context of algebraic

number theory. This exemplifies the abstract nature of mathematics and how it is not restricted to

questions one may ask in daily life.

In a different direction, mathematicians ask questions about space and transformations that are

not restricted to geometric figures such as squares and circles. For instance, an active area of

research in differential topology concerns itself with the ways one can "smooth" higher-

dimensional figures. In fact, whether one can smooth certain higher-dimensional spheres was,

until recently, an open problem —known as the smooth Poincaré conjecture. Another aspect of

mathematics, set-theoretic topology and point-set topology, concerns objects of a different nature

from objects in our universe, or in a higher-dimensional analogue of our universe. These objects

behave in a rather strange manner under deformations, and the properties they possess are

completely different from those of objects in our universe. For instance, the "distance" between

two points on such an object, may depend on the order in which you consider the pair of points.

This is quite different from ordinary life, in which it is accepted that the straight line distance

from person A to person B is the same as that between person B and person A.

Another aspect of mathematics, often referred to as "foundational mathematics", consists of the

fields of logic and set theory. These explore various ideas regarding the ways one can prove

certain claims. This theory is far more complex than it seems, in that the truth of a claim depends

on the context in which the claim is made, unlike basic ideas in daily life where truth is absolute.

In fact, although some claims may be true, it is impossible to prove or disprove them in rather

natural contexts.

Category theory, another field within "foundational mathematics", is rooted on the abstract

axiomatization of the definition of a "class of mathematical structures", referred to as a

"category". A category intuitively consists of a collection of objects, and defined relationships

between them. While these objects may be anything (such as "tables" or "chairs"),

mathematicians are usually interested in particular, more abstract, classes of such objects. In any

case, it is the relationships between these objects, and not the actual objects that are

predominantly studied.
