The Function of Mathematical Sciences
The Institute of Statistical Mathematics, 10-3 Midori-cho, Tachikawa-shi, Tokyo
The author clarifies the position of mathematical sciences in trans-disciplinary sciences and technologies after he reviews typical roles of classical mathematical sciences as the method of fluxions by Newton and historical efforts to explain mathematical sciences to non-mathematicians by Clifford and Pearson. He also tries the classification of the function of mathematical scientific methods from the viewpoints of their objects and operations.
