Abstract

Recently industry goes through enormous revolution. Related to this, major changes in applied mathematics are occurring while coping with the new trends like machine learning and data analysis. The last two decades have shown practical applicability of the long-developed mathematical theories, especially some advanced mathematics which had not been introduced to applied mathematics. In this concern some countries like the U.S. or Australia have studied the changing environments related to mathematics and its applications and deduce strategies for mathematics research and education. In this paper we review some of their studies and discuss possible relations with the history of mathematics.

Keywords
