  • Accuracy - the closeness of a value to thte true value
  • Algebra - the branch of mathematics concerning the study of the rules of operations and relations
  • Algorithms - the expression of a method as a list of well-defined instructions for calculating a function
  • Arithmetic - the study of quantities, especially as regards combining quantities
  • Calculus - the branch of mathematics dealing with the calculation of "infinitesimals" and discrete quantities
  • Equations - a mathematical statement asserting the equality of two expressions
  • Geometry - the mathematics of space and shape
  • Numerical analysis - the study of algorithms that use numerical approximations, as distinguished from discrete mathematics
  • Optimization & minimization - the mathematical pursuit of the simplest and clearest solution
  • Probability - the likelihood of an event
  • Sequences - the particular order in which related events occur
  • Set theory - the branch of mathematics that studies sets, or collections of objects
  • Statistics - the study of the collection, organization and interpretation of data
  • Taylor series - a representation of a functions as an infinite sum of terms that are calculated form the values of the function's derivatives at a single point
  • Topology - the branch of mathematics that deals with properties that are conserved under continuous deformations of objects
  • Transforms - a process which transforms one function into another
