Abstract

In this work I consider the connection between pure mathematics and applied mathematics from a historian’s point of view and I conclude that pure mathematics and applied mathematics are inseparably intertwined.

Keywords

Pure mathematics Applied mathematics Gauß’s theory of errors Folium of descartes Cyclotomic equations Proof of the impossibility Analysis of the infinity
