Mathematics and Applied Mathematics
April 11, 2013
It is shown by a number of major developments in the last century that the standard set of mathematical tools and physical models are not sufficient to allow us to faithfully describe the divers complex systems that arise in all branches of science and engineering. This monograph is dedicated to the numerical foundations of a new important mathematics called isomathematics discovered by the Italian-American physicist Ruggero Maria Santilli, President of The Institute for Basic Research, Palm Harbor, Florida, USA (e-mail: [email protected], web site: http://www.i-b-r.org). On August 23, 1997, Prof. Santilli was invited by the Chinese Academy of Sciences to convene a workshop in Beijing, China. During that occasion, Prof. Santilli gave a series of lectures which provided new and exciting insights into some of the fundamental open problems facing contemporary mathematics, physics and other sciences at the dawn of the new millennium, with particular reference to the need for new mathematics based on new numbers.
