- Overview

Industrial mathematics is a branch of applied mathematics, but the latter can include theoretical topics such as physics, biology, economics, and computer science. 

Industrial mathematics focuses on problems from industry and aims to find solutions relevant to industry, including finding The most efficient (i.e. cost-effective) way to solve a problem. With the increasing sophistication and sophistication of modern industry, someone who can understand technical problems, formulate precise and accurate mathematical models, implement solutions using the latest computer technology, and communicate these ideas to partners may be managers, 

Workers such as engineers are becoming a necessary part of many organizations and companies. Industrial fields where industrial mathematicians can find work include signal processing, computer graphics, risk management, system reliability, software testing and verification, database systems, production line optimization, and marketing research (see the Applied Mathematics Resources webpage for career information). 


- Industrial Mathmatics for The Modern Economy

Industrial mathematics is of great importance to the world economy and spans many high-value industry fields, including engineering, finance, defense, life sciences, and even sports and entertainment. 

To maintain their status and economic efficiency, these industries must strive to be advanced, innovative and innovative. The same argument applies to more traditional sectors such as agriculture, utilities and manufacturing. In all cases, there is clearly a need to define the problem in a sound mathematical way and solve it using appropriate, often innovative, mathematical techniques to produce optimal economic and social outcomes. 

Industrial mathematics is currently dealing with the uncertain data-rich world that industry now faces. It does this by developing and applying tools that can take into account the uncertainties that can arise in many different situations and can lead to many statistical patterns. At the same time, industry-driven problem-solving is relentlessly expanding, presenting ever-increasing challenges to the entire mathematics community.

- Industrial Mathematics and The Knowledge Economy

Due to the outbreak of the knowledge economy, the modern manufacturing and service industries have undergone tremendous changes in modern times. Fast and cheap computing, office products, and the development and utilization of large databases all require sophisticated methods to meet new demands. Industrial mathematics is a contributing factor to the realization and implementation of these methods. 

In recent years, the mathematical community has responded to the growing demand in industry for mathematically trained personnel. Organizations such as the Fields Institute, MITACS and PIMS in Canada, and SIAM and NSF in the U.S. (these organizations are found in the references at the bottom) have been promoting the interaction of mathematics with industry and continue to develop methods to meet industry demands for mathematically trained needs of personnel. 

The creation of mathematical and statistical modeling and the development of numerical methods and/or algorithms for use in computers to obtain solutions to industrial problems has been referred to as the science of industrial mathematics, or simply industrial mathematics. There is currently a growing demand for mathematically trained individuals who can enter business and industry. Numerous reports and studies conducted by professional organisations show that there is a growing need in the workforce for mathematics graduates with practical skills to work with managers, engineers and more. 


- Industrial Mathematics and Applications 

Industrial mathematics is one of the fastest growing branches of mathematical sciences, attracting the attention of scientists, researchers and engineers in both academia and industry. 

In addition to mathematics, industrial mathematics is playing an increasingly important role in developing robotics and automation systems, mechanical engineering, civil engineering, and more. It focuses on developing and finding the most efficient mathematical methods to solve problems that arise in industrial settings. 

Over the past two decades, the economic and eco-industrial sectors have undergone tremendous changes due to the tremendous growth of the knowledge economy. Several challenges have arisen in the economic and ecological industries, requiring innovative approaches and solutions to meet new demands. 

For example, looking for cheap and fast computing, cost reduction and quality improvement, logistics and complex transportation management, analyzing big data and finding the best solutions, etc. Industrial mathematics is a key factor in designing, implementing and implementing these methods. 

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following: 

  • Applied Mathematical Modeling
  • Mathematical Methods for Industrial Robots and Automation Systems
  • Mathematical Methods in Mechanical and Civil Engineering
  • Algorithms, Optimization and Optimal Control
  • Partial Differential Equation and Its Application in Engineering
