The Scope for Theory

  • Nigel Forward


The mathematics we have encountered so far has been of a limited kind: some two-dimensional Cartesian geometry, some linear differential equations usually in two variables, some statistical methods, some rudimentary graph theory and one more fundamental branch of mathematics (I mean game theory), grounded in set theory and probability theory, which we have found unsuited to our present purpose. Hardly an exciting catch, considering the variety of good fish there are in the sea. Does the review we have carried out bring any insight into the prospects of a more profitable use of the resources of mathematics in the future?
