Pauli Symposium on "How many mathematics ?!" 


 
Topics: Why is “mathematics”, “les mathematiques” in plural e.g. in English, French, and “Mathematik” in singular e.g. in German !? Are there different science cultures/politics expressed in the language ? Why are there 2 sections of mathematics in the French (CNU) system ?! : Sec. 25 : “mathematiques” , Sec. 26 : “mathematiques appliquées et applications des mathematiques”. What are "beautiful mathematics"  what are "useful mathematics" ? Is there a relation between them ? How many mathematics ?! What about the answer : "2 : correct and false!" ? Is/are mathematics more than theorems and proving if they are correct or false ? Are "theoremfree" mathematical modeling & numerical simulation two of the most important mathematics ? What about "physics" (plural) vs "la physique / die Physik" (singular) ?! Biology, Chemistry only singular in all languages !? Are "informatics" ("computer science") and "statistics" part of "mathematics" ? Participants will be from mathematics, physics, "computer science" and various applied fields like micromagnetism, engineering, biology, medicine,... Programme : short statements of each participant, some "presentations" and a general discussion, maybe we agree (to disagree) on an answer.
