Scientists, mathematicians, and inventors [electronic resource]: lives and legacies: an encyclopedia of people who changed the world by Simonis, Doris A; Hertzenberg, CarolinePages: Mathematicians conduct research in fields such as logic, theory, abstract algebra, numerical analysis, topology, geometry, dynamical systems, combinatorics, optimization, computation, probability and statistics.

These fields comprise both pure mathematics and applied mathematics. An inventor takes the laws and theories of science and puts them to practical use by humans. Many people are both scientists and inventors.
