## Study Notes

### Major Subdisciplines of Modern Mathematics

• Pure mathematics: includes number theory, algebra, geometry, and analysis
• Applied mathematics: includes mathematical physics, mathematical biology, and mathematical finance
• Discrete mathematics: includes combinatorics, graph theory, and discrete geometry
• Computational mathematics: includes numerical analysis, scientific computing, and algorithmic mathematics

### Mathematical Activity

• Most mathematical activity involves investigating and understanding mathematical structures and their properties
• Mathematicians use abstractions, logical reasoning, and rigor to develop and apply mathematical theories and models

### Mathematical Objects

• Mathematical objects in modern mathematics consist of abstract entities such as numbers, geometric shapes, functions, and graphs
• These objects can be represented symbolically, graphically, or numerically, and are governed by mathematical laws and principles

### Proofs in Mathematics

• A proof in mathematics consists of a logical and systematic argument that establishes the truth of a mathematical statement
• A proof typically involves a series of logical steps, each based on previously established mathematical facts and principles

### Nature of Entities in Modern Mathematics

• Entities in modern mathematics are abstract and exist independently of the physical world
• They are defined by their properties and relationships, and are governed by mathematical laws and principles rather than physical laws
