Pauli Symposium on "How many mathematics ?!"

Location: WPI c/o Fak Mathematik, OMP1, 1090 Wien
Time: 14. Sep 2018 (Fri) - 15. Sep 2018 (Sat); Opening: 13:00
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 "theorem-free" 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.
