Minisymposium (ID: SS-IM)
Organizer: Sean Bohun (UOIT)
Perhaps one of the simplest definitions of Industrial Mathematics as being problem
driven mathematics for the sake of science rather while pure mathematics may be regarded as
mathematics for its own sake. The term industry is meant in a very broad sense consisting of any
field with either a commercial or societal benefit, whether it be the optimal design of an electric
motor, modelling financial options or even classifying mother/child interactions. It is characterized
by an underlying philosophy of problem-driven rather than area-led mathematics which often results
in the novel use of mathematics to highlight cross disciplinary understanding that would not be
possible with more traditional methods. This special session will highlight work across the wide
spectrum of industrial mathematics illustrating the collaboration of mathematics, science and
industry to provide insight to real life problems.
