## Probability

2 linksBranch of mathematics concerning numerical descriptions of how likely an event is to occur, or how likely it is that a proposition is true.

Branch of mathematics concerning numerical descriptions of how likely an event is to occur, or how likely it is that a proposition is true.

These concepts have been given an axiomatic mathematical formalization in probability theory, which is used widely in areas of study such as statistics, mathematics, science, finance, gambling, artificial intelligence, machine learning, computer science, game theory, and philosophy to, for example, draw inferences about the expected frequency of events.

## Philosophy of mind

2 linksBranch of philosophy that studies the ontology and nature of the mind and its relationship with the body.

Branch of philosophy that studies the ontology and nature of the mind and its relationship with the body.

These approaches have been particularly influential in the sciences, especially in the fields of sociobiology, computer science (specifically, artificial intelligence), evolutionary psychology and the various neurosciences.

## Applied mathematics

2 linksApplied mathematics is the application of mathematical methods by different fields such as physics, engineering, medicine, biology, finance, business, computer science, and industry.

## Edsger W. Dijkstra

2 linksDutch computer scientist, programmer, software engineer, systems scientist, and science essayist.

Dutch computer scientist, programmer, software engineer, systems scientist, and science essayist.

To mark the occasion and to celebrate his forty-plus years of seminal contributions to computing science, the Department of Computer Sciences organized a symposium, which took place on his 70th birthday in May 2000.

## Computational science

2 linksAlgorithms (numerical and non-numerical): mathematical models, computational models, and computer simulations developed to solve science (e.g., biological, physical, and social), engineering, and humanities problems

CSE should neither be confused with pure computer science, nor with computer engineering, although a wide domain in the former is used in CSE (e.g., certain algorithms, data structures, parallel programming, high-performance computing), and some problems in the latter can be modeled and solved with CSE methods (as an application area).

## Domain theory

0 linksBranch of mathematics that studies special kinds of partially ordered sets commonly called domains.

Branch of mathematics that studies special kinds of partially ordered sets commonly called domains.

The field has major applications in computer science, where it is used to specify denotational semantics, especially for functional programming languages.

## George Forsythe

0 linksAmerican computer scientist and numerical analyst who founded and led Stanford University's Computer Science Department.

American computer scientist and numerical analyst who founded and led Stanford University's Computer Science Department.

He served as the president of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), and also co-authored four books on computer science and a fifth on meteorology, and edited more than 75 other books on computer science.

## Type system

2 linksIn computer science, particularly programming languages, a type system is a logical system comprising a set of rules that assigns a property called a type to every "term", usually the various constructs of a computer program, such as variables, expressions, functions or modules.

## Data communication

1 linksTransfer and reception of data in the form of a digital bitstream or a digitized analog signal over a point-to-point or point-to-multipoint communication channel.

Transfer and reception of data in the form of a digital bitstream or a digitized analog signal over a point-to-point or point-to-multipoint communication channel.

Basic principles of data transmission may also be covered within the computer science or computer engineering topic of data communications, which also includes computer networking applications and communication protocols, for example routing, switching and inter-process communication.
