An Applied Mathematics Discipline is a mathematics discipline that is an applied discipline (that investigates the application of ideas from theoretical mathematics).



  • (Wikipedia, 2009) ⇒
    • Applied mathematics is a branch of Mathematics that concerns itself with the mathematical techniques typically used in the application of mathematical knowledge to other domains.
    • The SIAM Journal on Applied Mathematics publishes research articles that treat scientific problems using methods that are of mathematical interest. Appropriate subject areas include the physical, engineering, financial, and life sciences. Examples are problems in fluid mechanics, including reaction-diffusion problems, sedimentation, combustion, and transport theory; solid mechanics; elasticity; electromagnetic theory and optics; mathematical biology, including population dynamics, biomechanics, and physiology; linear and nonlinear wave propagation, including scattering theory and wave propagation in random media; inverse problems; nonlinear dynamics; stochastic processes, including queueing theory and finance; signal processing; and image processing. Mathematical techniques include asymptotic methods, bifurcation theory, dynamical systems theory, and probabilistic and statistical methods.
    • The Journal of Computational and Applied Mathematics publishes original papers of high scientific value in all areas of computational and applied mathematics. The main interest of the Journal is in papers that describe and analyse new computational techniques for solving scientific or engineering problems. In addition, the improved analysis, including the effectiveness and applicability, of existing methods and algorithms, is of importance.
    • Survey articles dealing with interactions between different fields of applied mathematics are welcome.
