The Unreasonable Expectation of Mathematics

Authors: August Lau

Mathematics has been highly effective in its application of formalism to the real world. It spans from physical science to data science. Mathematical algorithm affects our everyday life. Mathematization (converting data to equations or mathematical forms) has been very successful. It has led to comments like “the unreasonable effectiveness of mathematics,” but we might have “unreasonable expectation of mathematics.”
