Mathematics is the foundation of this universe. Mathematics has been established as a universal ingredient in the understanding of the world and is the language used in conveying this understanding. Now that we have entered the 21st century, higher mathematics is not just a tool for physical scientists and engineers but it is also of crucial importance to business, economics, and even the social sciences.
