Importance and unpredictable effectiveness of mathematics in the real world and for industry

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

It is known that there exist several fundamental mathematical conjectures which remain unsolved (i.e., propositions that have not yet been proved but are anticipated to be true). Interestingly and somewhat ironically, the process of searching for proofs often raises interesting new problems that yield new insight intomathematics. This in turn stimulates the development of new branches of mathematics.
