Brief Description

Many things in everyday life would not exist or function without mathematics. Although it is hard to believe, mathematic applications are hidden behind many trusted products and services. Well-lnown examples include internet search engines, timetabls, CDs, MP3 players, encryption processes, medicine, computer tomography, insurance, etc. Mathematics is a key technology, without which most modern applications would not even be conceivable. Mathematics plays a fundamental role in industrial research and development, finance, medicine, and economics. Mathematics is crucial when models and simulations replace consuming and costly test series, when predictions must be made, and is crucial to process analyses and optimization. In addition to its application relevance and its usefulness, mathematics can be fun and exciting.
