Mathematics is the study of numbers and their operations, interrelations, combinations, generalizations, and abstractions and of space configurations and their structure, measurement, transformations, and generalizations. It evolved through the use of abstraction and logical reasoning, from counting, calculation, measurement, and the systematic study of positions, shapes, and motions of physical objects. Mathematicians explore such concepts, aiming to formulate new conjectures and establish their truth by rigorous deduction from appropriately chosen axioms and definitions.

In this category, you can find a wide range of articles from pure mathematics and applied mathematics. Many current mathematics-focused topics such as awards and competitions, 21-century mathematicians, and new development in applied mathematics are explored. We have covered the historical milestones as well as modern events to provide a well-rounded view of the field of mathematics.
