About Mathematics

  About Mathematics  
Brief introductions

Mathematics - Mathematics is used throughout the world as an essential tool in many fields, including natural science, engineering, medicine, and the social sciences. Applied mathematics, the branch of mathematics concerned with application of mathematical knowledge to other fields, inspires and makes use of new mathematical discoveries and sometimes leads to the development of entirely new mathematical disciplines, such as statistics and game theory. Mathematicians also engage in pure mathematics, or mathematics for its own sake, without having any application in mind. There is no clear line separating pure and applied mathematics and practical applications for what began as pure mathematics are often discovered. (Wikipedia)

The following links have been chosen by iBerry as good examples of OCW for this topic. Only significant content such as notes, images, videos etc covering topics in reasonable depth are included. Items consisting only of course advertisements, sub-topic headings, single lectures or where a significant proportion of material is password protected are not included. Comments are welcome!

Galileo and Einstein

explores two revolutions in perception of the universe, Galileo (realization that what we see in the heavens—the moon, the planets, the sun and stars—are physical objects), Einstein (space and time are not as straightforward as they first appear, but related to each other in a simple but unexpected way)

Insights into Mathematics (videos)

aims to explain interesting mathematics to a broad audience, to introduce exciting new research directions for geometry, and to fix some of the logical weaknesses of modern pure mathematics; Rational Trigonometry (much simpler, more powerful), Linear Algebra, Algebraic Topology, History of Mathematics, Universal Hyperbolic Geometry, Foundations of Mathematics

- - - - LOBACHEVSKY - Tom Lehrer - - -

A Tom Lehrer classic but as the uploader of this video comments - "btw don't take it seriously! Lobachevsky was a great mathematician ..."
