Topic: Mathematics vs computer science

Here already there was a similar subject, I want to formulate a subject a little in another way. When the programmer develops something difficult, is frequent before it there are tasks both from mathematics area, and from "computer science". There is a question, the edge between these two sciences is how much blurred? It seems to me, it is rather blurred, and it is possible to find many the intermediate examples which are in any place of a scale "from mathematics to programming". Here examples of three tasks (optimization receptions) which as I understand, are in this boundary and from the first example to the third there is the smooth passage from mathematics to : - at multiplication of matrixes to replace a part of multiplyings with additions; - at division of set of numbers into a constant to replace with its multiplication of these numbers to number, reverse to this constant; - to multiply a loop body that on one iteration it was necessary on the average less operators of the conditional passages. What else it is possible to invent examples?

Programming is one more section of mathematics. A difference only in what models you use in the program - purely mathematical models, say, a sine-kosinus, or models corresponding to objects of the real world. If the first it is strongly rare,  for the sake of mathematics. If the second the appropriate science - physics, biology, or other sphere of activity, for example inventory will be tightened here, imposition, insurance and .

There is a question, the edge between these two sciences is how much blurred? , the mathematics is a pure science. Calculus mathematics - the applied science, called to invent and implement methods for application of computers in the decision of mathematical tasks or usages of these in others application-oriented or not so, sciences and crafts. Methods practically always confidants. This empirical judgement, not the rigid statement.

Re: Mathematics vs computer science

Hello, Khimik, you wrote: Mathematics - a science about some abstraction. The real world to it, in general is not necessary, it quitted it (geometry at ancient Greeks), but for a long time it came off. That to it, for example before that the physical world three-dimensional (I do not consider space-time) - would be desirable it to have multidimentional spaces, has the right. If then its outputs somehow correspond to the real world - remarkably, and these theories can be applied in those sciences which study the real world. If do not correspond - it quite manages. Perhaps once in the real world also there will be something to what this mathematical theory can be applied. For example, the group theory when its Galois and its predecessors created, any side to chemistry did not lie, and then was suddenly clarified that it not bad approaches for the description of symmetry of crystals. The abstract: mathematicians - the device, which some elements can be used in sciences about the real world. To the physicist, chemistries, programming, building and square-cluster cultivation of tomatoes.

Re: Mathematics vs computer science

Hello, Voblin, you wrote: V> So communication IT with mathematics it is faster a myth, than a reality. On sphere of activity depends. IT it is too wide. Someone writes warehouses with accounts departments on ready "engines", so there algebras for 5th class of high school for eyes. And someone solves optimization tasks (the linear programming) either tasks on columns or handling of signals. In general, programming as a whole is an application-oriented part of mathematics. But also programming of "purely mathematical tasks", it, more likely, applied programming, just as programming, say, biological or chemical tasks.))

In chess very difficultly independently to find the answer - what to find an error in the account, it is necessary to find an error in the account Besides, chess you ' you feel ' figures, instead of combinations. And certainly, chess does not give basis for physics, chemistry and other things. They generally give  which are a little applicable in real life, except several exceptions.

P> programming - not mathematics. One of varieties of engineering craft. And computer science is a science generalizing and classifying knowledge of programming. And here computer science it is intersected with mathematics. With that that computer science is a section of mathematics in a root do not agree. Here we tell OOP patterns is computer science, but in any way mathematics. And here algorithms are already and computer science and mathematics. So I would define computer science as a science intersected with mathematics. And programming, as an engineering speciality using computer science as a basic science.
