Hi.General maths is not a science, unlike economics or statistics which is a way of interpreting data through maths.

Why do you (Nakedscientists) have a thousand sections for life sciences (that was just a rough count) and not one section for Mathematics? Mathematics is everywhere but life sciences are only useful in a small number of real world situations.

Let's say Jane went shopping and picked up a thing that required her to evaluate an integral over a closed path on the complex plane. Alternatively consider John, who was out walking in the sunshine when he had a need to generate an infinite sequence of numbers that are co-prime but not primes. Where are these people going to get help with their serious problems?
