  What is Applied Mathematics?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-19)
Applied (or perhaps Applicable) Mathematics consists of mathematical techniques and results, including those from "pure" math areas such as (abstract) algebra or algebraic topology, which are used to assist in the investigation of problems or questions originating outside of mathematics.
Thus a distinction between applied and pure mathematics is one of the interest and purpose of the practitioner, it is not a fixed dichotomy or division of the subject areas of mathematics.
Applied mathematical and computational sciences is a name used to encompass the many analytical and numerical methods used to solve certain types of scientific problems.
