Applied Mathematics
Applied Mathematics is the study of quantification of problems from the real world, and methods to solve those problems. It works on problems from engineering, agriculture, all sciences, anthropology, health; in short its problems come from all human experience. Subdivisions of applied math include porous media, numerical solution of differential equations, decision science and machine learning, signal processing and data compression, and countless other areas of application.
