Applied mathematics is concerned with the interaction between mathematics and other sciences, such as physics, computer science, engineering, economics and biology. This interaction is often bi-directional: mathematical concepts and techniques are used to model and solve concrete problems in other fields. Reciprocally, scientific progress raises new mathematical problems, and motivates the development of new mathematical concepts and tools. The mathematical side of applied mathematics can potentially encompass all fields in mathematics, e.g., analysis (including numerical analysis), algebra, geometry, topology and probability.
