The Year of Mathematics 2008
No other scientific discipline has permeated and influenced daily life and business in quite the way mathematics has.
From car manufacturing to road planning, from supermarket shopping to architecture, from the weather report to the MP3 player, from rail travel to the internet - it's all mathematics. Math is the basis of every technical development and of all natural sciences.
Mathematics is the theme of our special edition of TOMORROW TODAY.
Since 2000, Germany's Federal Ministry of Education and Research has chosen to promote a specific discipline of science each year, in collaboration with the Initiative for Science in Dialogue (WiD) and the country's major research organizations.
