Mathematics such as calculus, algebra, and numerical analysis are all essential components of engineering

## Subcategories

• Accuracy - the closeness of a value to the 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
