Probability and Statistics

[Return to start of tour] [Up to The Divisions of Mathematics]

These areas consider the use of numerical information to quantify observations about events. The tools and development are clearly mathematical; these areas overlap with analysis in particular. On the other hand, the use of the ideas developed here is primarily not mathematical areas so much as in the applications to the sciences.

Fields which contribute significantly to the development of these include 28: Measure and Integration; 05: Combinatorics; and 65: Numerical Analysis. Fields which make significant use of these include 85: Statistical mechanics; 90: Economics and operations research; and 92: Biology and behavioural sciences;

You might want to continue the tour with a trip through computer and information sciences.
