## Mathematics

Mathematics, more than any other human endeavor, relies on deductive reasoning to
produce new knowledge from the investigation of natural events, whether they occur in
our immediate environment or in the immensity of space. It serves as a universal
language which represents, interprets, and integrates all such knowledge. The subject of
mathematics is divided into algebra, geometry, analysis, and probability. Some of the
concepts of each of these subdivisions are particularly useful in helping to discuss or
solve problems in other fields. These concepts are frequently called Applied
Mathematics.
