Algebra, from the Arabic al-jebr, meaning “reunion of broken parts”, is one of the wide-ranging parts of mathematics, combined with number theory, geometry, and analysis. Algebra can basically be considered as doing computations much like that of arithmetic with non-numerical mathematical objects. Initially, these objects were variables that represented either numbers that weren’t yet known or unspecified numbers, permitting one to state and prove properties that are true no matter...

Geometry is a branch of mathematics that is concerned with questions of shape, size, relative position of figures, and the properties of space. A mathematician who works in the geometry field is called a geometer. Geometry arose independently in numerous early cultures as a body of practical knowledge concerning areas, lengths, and volumes, with elements of a formal mathematical science emerging in the West as early as Thales. By the 3rd century BC, geometry was put into an axiomatic form by...

Applied mathematics is a branch of mathematics that focuses on mathematical methods that are usually used in science, engineering, business, and industry. Therefore, “applied mathematics” is a mathematical science with specialized knowledge. The term “applied mathematics” also explains the professional specialty in which mathematicians work on practical problems; as a profession focused on practical problems, applied mathematics focuses on the formulation and study of mathematical...

In mathematics and computer science, an algorithm is a step-by-step procedure for calculations. Algorithms are used for calculations, automated reasoning, and data processing. An algorithm is an effective technique expressed as a finite list of well-defined instructions for calculating a function. Starting from an initial state and an initial input, the instructions describe a computation that, when executed, proceeds through a finite number of well-defined successive states and eventually...
