Study Notes

Major Subdisciplines of Modern Mathematics

  • Pure mathematics: focuses on the development of mathematical theories and models for their own sake
  • Applied mathematics: uses mathematical theories and models to solve real-world problems

Proofs in Mathematics

  • Consist of a series of logical statements based on axioms and previously proven results
  • Intended to establish the truth of a mathematical statement or theorem

Mathematical Activity

  • Primary method: deductive reasoning, using logical arguments to arrive at conclusions
  • Involves formulating conjectures, testing hypotheses, and refining theories

Objects of Mathematical Study

  • Numbers, geometric shapes, algebraic structures, and other mathematical objects
  • Relations, functions, and transformations between these objects
  • Properties, patterns, and structures of these objects

Nature of Mathematical Axioms

  • Self-evident truths or fundamental principles that serve as the foundation of a mathematical theory
  • Accepted as true without proof, serving as the basis for subsequent theorems and proofs

Roentgen

  • Definition: a unit of measurement for the biological effect of ionizing radiation
  • Measures the amount of ionizing radiation required to produce a certain biological effect
  • Equivalent to 2.58 x 10^-4 Coulombs per kilogram of air

Applications of Roentgen

  • Commonly used in radiation therapy and radiation protection in the field of medicine
