 Answer by wendi Submitted on 1/2/2004 Rating: Rate this answer: N/A Worst Weak OK Good Great to add onto ace's answer... topology, which includes knot theory and such discrete mathematics number theory - includes analysis...like complex, numberical, etc etc euclidean geometry graph theory algebra - includes Combinatorics there are really too many to list...and they are all so interesting.

 Answer by Dave Submitted on 1/11/2004 Rating: Rate this answer: N/A Worst Weak OK Good Great I forgot to mention Probability and Statistics; I guess I would make a seperate section for them. Also Differential Geometry should go under Geometry and Topology. Number Theory should go under Algebra, but part of Number Theory also uses techniques from Analysis. Model Theory should go with Logic. Then there are branches wich are a mixture of other branches, like Algebraic Geometry and K-Theory.

 Answer by Dave Submitted on 1/13/2004 Rating: Rate this answer: N/A Worst Weak OK Good Great My first post got messed up. I would be happy to explain what some of these branches are. I know more about some branches than others. Here is a fairly comprehensive list of the branches of Mathematics: 1. Foundations     -Logic & Model Theory     -Computability Theory & Recursion Theory     -Set Theory     -Category Theory 2. Algebra     -Group Theory -> Symmetry     -Ring Theory -> Polynomials     -Field Theory     -Module Theory -> Linear Algebra     -Galois Theory -> The Theory of Equations     -Number Theory     -Combinatorics     -Algebraic Geometry 3. Mathematical Analysis     -Real Analysis & Measure Theory -> Calculus     -Complex Analysis     -Tensor & Vector Analysis     -Differential & Integral Equations     -Numerical Analysis     -Functional Analysis & The Theory of Functions 4. Geometry & Topology     -Euclidean Geometry     -Non-Euclidean Geometry (Hyperpolic & Elliptic)     -Absolute Geometry     -Metric Geometry     -Projective Geometry     -Affine Geometry     -Discrete Geometry & Graph Theory     -Differential Geometry     -Point-Set or General Topology     -Algebraic Topology 4. Applied Mathematics     -Probability Theory     -Statistics     -Computer Science     -Mathematical Physics     -Game Theory     -Systems & Control Theory

 Answer by EINSTEIN Submitted on 3/25/2006 Rating: Not yet rated Rate this answer: N/A Worst Weak OK Good Great Mathematical Analysis: The essential ingredient of analysis is the use of infinite processes, involving passage to a limit. For example, the area of a circle may be computed as the limiting value of the areas of inscribed regular polygons as the number of sides of the polygons increases indefinitely. The basic branch of analysis is the calculus. The general problem of measuring lengths, areas, volumes, and other quantities as limits by means of approximating polygonal figures leads to the integral calculus. The differential calculus arises similarly from the problem of finding the tangent line to a curve at a point. Other branches of analysis result from the application of the concepts and methods of the calculus to various mathematical entities. For example, vector analysis is the calculus of functions whose variables are vectors. Here various types of derivatives and integrals may be introduced. They lead, among other things, to the theory of differential and integral equations, in which the unknowns are functions rather than numbers, as in algebraic equations. Differential equations are often the most natural way in which to express the laws governing the behavior of various physical systems. Calculus is one of the most powerful and supple tools of mathematics. Its applications, both in pure mathematics and in virtually every scientific domain, are manifold.
