Mathematics is commonly defined as the study of patterns of structure, change, and space; more informally, one might say it is the study of "figures and numbers".
Mathematics might be seen as a simple extension of spoken and written languages, with an extremely precisely defined vocabulary and grammar, for the purpose of describing and exploring physical and conceptual relationships.
Although mathematics itself is not usually considered a natural science, the specific structures that are investigated by mathematicians often have their origin in the natural sciences, most commonly in physics.

 Mathematics - Crystalinks
Numeral systems have been many and diverse.From the beginnings of recorded history, the major disciplines within mathematics arose out of the need to do calculations relating to taxation and commerce, to understand the relationships among numbers, to measure land, and to predict astronomical events.
Experimental mathematics continues to grow in importance within mathematics, and computation and simulation are playing an increasing role in both the sciences and mathematics, weakening the objection that mathematics does not utilize the scientific method.
Mathematical awards are generally kept separate from their equivalents in science.

In particular, the project intends to identify and categorize specific types of systems in which the consequences of uncertainty are influential to different extents, and to identify how (if at all possible) either the minimum unavoidable amount of uncertainty involved or the significance of its effect on the mathematical representation may be methodologically reduced.
Randomness intrinsic to the system will generate uncertainty of itself that may be additional to the uncertainty arising from limited precision of knowledge, thus the effect of uncertainty in these two types of systems must be considered separately.
A CHAOTIC system refers to a nonequilibrium (typically deterministic) system possessing sensitive dependence on initial conditions such that an arbitrarily small change at one time brings about an arbitrarily large difference in the trajectory some time later, such that lacking perfect knowledge of initial conditions the eventual behaviour is eventually rendered completely unpredictable.

Mathematics (often abbreviated to math or, in British English, maths) is commonly defined as the study of patterns of structure, change, and space.
In the modern view, mathematics is usually considered the investigation of axiomatically defined abstract structures using formal logic as the common or foundational framework.
In general the philosophy of mathematics one adopts has little effect on mathematical practice: mathematicians all over the world can rely on mathematics as a language even if there are arguments about the meaning or reliability of certain constructs or "words" or "phrases" used in any given "sentence".

 Deterministic system (philosophy) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A deterministic system is a conceptual model of the philosophical doctrine of determinism applied to a system for understanding everything that has and will occur in the system, based on the physical outcomes of causality.
And the system itself must be considered in isolation--if external forces such as hurricanes, earthquakes or the hands of nearby people were taken into consideration, the final domino toppling might not be a predetermined outcome.
Classical physics is the deterministic system assumed in the domino example which scientists can use to describe all events which take place on a scale larger than individual atoms.

Mathematics is often defined as the study of topics such as quantity, structure, space, and change.
Practical mathematics, in nearly every society, is used for such purposes as accounting, measuring land, or predicting astronomical events.
In the case of geometry, for example, it is not relevant to mathematics to know whether points and lines exist in any physical sense, as geometry starts from axioms and postulates about abstract entities called "points" and "lines" that we feed into the system.

Mathematical thought has to be well-formulated and translated into the language of the calculator or computer when, for example, a computer or calculator is programmed to estimate the probability that a quadrat ic equation has real roots under varying conditions on the coefficients.
Because "doing mathematics" in the workplace now requires the use of technology in many instances and because of the pedagogical advantages associated with the use of technology in the teaching and learnin g of mathematics, technology is now a component of many of the mathematics content courses in the mathematics major.

 Jules Henri Poincaré [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy]
His research on the stability of the solar system opened the door to the study of chaotic deterministic systems; and the methods he used gave rise to algebraic topology.
However, Poincaré found that the evolution of such a system is often chaotic in the sense that a small perturbation in the initial state such as a slight change in one body's initial position might lead to a radically different later state than would be produced by the unperturbed system.
According to Poincaré, a definition of a mathematical entity is not the exposition of the essential properties of the entity, but it is the construction of the entity itself; in other words, a legitimate mathematical definition creates and justifies its object.

 Part I
And even within the realm of deterministic dynamics, most of the important theorems involve quantities that are only possible to compute for systems with a handful of variables, instead of the hundreds, thousands or trillions of variables that characterize many real systems.
The abstract space is the set of "states" of the system (the set of states of the real-world system modelled by the mapping; or the abstract dynamical system implicit in the mapping).
A system in two dimensions, on the other hand, has two exponents: one for the x direction, computed using partial derivatives with respect to x; and one for the y direction, computed using partial derivatives with respect to y.

In the formalist view, it is the investigation of axiomatically defined abstract structures using logic and mathematical notation; other views are described in Philosophy of mathematics.
The specific structures that are investigated by mathematicians often have their origin in the natural sciences, most commonly in physics, but mathematicians also define and investigate structures for reasons purely internal to mathematics, because the structures may provide, for instance, a unifying generalization for several subfields, or a helpful tool for common calculations.
