Pure vs Applied Mathematics

In today's day young science wizards are more willling to create more technologies for the betterment of humanity ..But there has been a loss of interest in pure mathematics .Nobody is there founding to be aspiring to be a theoretical physicist or mathematician.Its destroying Science's beauty and elegeance as in its applied form .It was intended to be as a language anda source to undersatnd our universe not to modify to a very long extent when end is inevitable.

I think pure mathematics is the real maths. It's quite sad to know that in today's world not many want to be a scientist or mathematician, but they want to become engineers or doctors. Man, where are those old days??? Siddharth Kumar · 4 years ago

That's not the case , as me myself want to become a mathematical physicist and I am from India. As I have heard from somewhere that each era is dominated by few subject which influence people like great example would be era of 20th century was great for physicist because of many great people Einstein, bohr, Heisenberg, feynman, Oppenheimer and many more , therefore in physics to excel in theoritical part one should have great excitement and skills. But out of these I would say that at that period of time there weren't many challenges that's why applied science was not taken by students but the time has changed we have many problem and we have address together that's why there is more excitement in applied part of subject thank you just remember world is like chemical reaction and like works like free radical method and every excited electron shall return to its ground state and I believe that one day interest in theoritical part shall be revived.

Do you have any actual evidence to support your claim, such as studies or surveys of college graduates who pursue a career in theoretical versus applied sciences? Do you have statistics on the number of PhDs or other equivalent terminal degrees in mathematics or physics? Or is this just a "feeling" or an impression that you have, with no basis in fact?

@Hero P. Yes i have enough evidence coz teh studies we have studied till no suggests that one day teh sun will burst removing humanity on earth and if u argue by saying that there exists life on other planets ,let me tell u if the theroy of cosmic expansion is right then one day the universe would all reach a pont where it will be unhabitable for any form of life coz then maths will die as time willl stop.and ltim,ately humanity or logic will perish Nabasindhu Das · 4 years ago
