About this book

The goal of this Handbook is to become an authoritative source with chapters that show the origins, unification, and points of similarity between different disciplines and mathematics. Some chapters will also show bifurcations and the development of disciplines which grow to take on a life of their own. Science and Art are used as umbrella terms to encompass the physical, natural and geological sciences, as well as the visual and performing arts.
As arts imagine possibilities, science attempts to generate models to test possibilities, mathematics serves as the tool. This handbook is an indispensable collection to understand todays effort to build bridges between disciplines. It answers questions such as:
What are the origins of interdisciplinarity in mathematics?
What are cross-cultural components of interdisciplinarity linked to mathematics?
What are contemporary interdisciplinary trends?
