Mathematics is both a science and an art.
great art, mathematics has an intrinsic beauty and coherence that has
attracted practitioners for centuries. Yet, unlike other arts,
mathematics is a surprisingly effective tool for describing the natural
world. Indeed, mathematics has come to serve as the foundation of
modern science, through its language and results. Some mathematical
results were initially developed in order to solve internally generated
mathematical problems and only later found application in other
disciplines; other mathematical results were inspired by the needs of
these other disciplines. The two facets of mathematics - tool of
science and subject of inquiry for its own sake - have come to be
interwoven into a complex fabric.
